i have a version of backup exec (2009) that run in a server with tape library. I am going to install a new version of backup exec (for hyper V) in different server but i will use the same tape library. Can i do that without loosing the old backup or i have to use new tapes ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your tape library should be connected to the server where you are installing Backup Exec.
For Migration of backup exec from one server to another refer to this technote:
http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH67296 : How to migrate / move Backup Exec from one version to another on different machine with a different server name.
You may use the existing tapes, before restoring any old data you will have to either copy catalogs
from the existing server or run catalog job on the tapes.
Data will remain intact as far as you dont ovewrite the tape
