Migrate EV File System Archiver stubs and content to new server?


We are using Symantec File System Archiver (Enterprise Vault) on a Windows server.  We would like to migrate all of the stubs from server A to server B.

Is there any documentation around that we can follow?  

We also need to determine if all of the files on server A are stubs or a mixture of physical files and some stubs - can this be done?

Would we need to rehydrate all files then copy the physical files and then archive once at the destination?

I assume we would need to install the FSA agent/client on the destination server also?

Thanks again

Off the top of your head do youknow what utilities I need to read up on in order to report on placeholders and non-archived files, and which utiliy will move them?  I get a feeling that the document covers everything whereby I probably only need to run a couple of tools?

Thanks again
