Hello all

I need to transfer the catalog from backupexec 2012 on a windows 2008 R2 server to backupexec 2014 on a windows 2012 server

Is any safe way to do it?

or else how can i migrate the old version backupexec (jobs not neccessary) to the new 2014 in a different server ans OS ?

Thanks .

To just move the catalogs, copy the contents of the Catalog directory under the BE installation directory to the Catalog directory of the new BE 2014. After the copy, restart all the BE services. If the catalogs do not appear on the console, then you need to use a command prompt and run Catrebuildindex -r

Hi Chris,

 

Refer to 1 of the 2 TNs below which detail how to do this, depending on whether or not you change your server name:

if you move everything, you would then look at deleting all the jobs.

Thanks!

Thanks a lot Craig

Interesting articles, but i think it won't work because the  move will be to a different OS.

It is not clear to me  you can do it, when the servers are on a different OS ver.

Yes you can...I've done this with a move from Windows Server 2003 R2 to Windows Server 2008 R2. As such, refer to the TN below:

I've done this too, but my target server is a win2012 , where you can't install backupexec 2012
