I currently have 1 CAS and 2 Media servers setup. I want to migrate the media servers to different servers.
They are all fibre attached to our tape library, as well as our SAN for B2D purposes. My understanding on how to do this would be as follows:
1 - Move B2D luns from old media server to new media server
2 - Ensure B2D can be seen from OS on new media server
3 - Recreate B2D folders in BE on new media server to point to existing B2D folder from old media server.
If i have to restore data, will BE know that the media exists on the new server? Is there anything else i should consider for this?
But dont each servers have their own local database? Ive already installed BE on the new Media Servers, and as a result their is already a SQL server instance.
Ive already done all of the licensing stuff as well, so no need to screenshots there.
How do i ensure 'catalogs are ready'? And how do i catalog the data?
1) Just stop BE Services and SQL services.
2) Copy the Old Catalog Files in the CATALOGS folder present in the C:\program files\Symantec\Backup Exec\Catalogs.
3) Start the SQL service and BE services.
4) You will get all the catalogs, with no problem and restoration of data.
