Has anyone used NetBackup migration tool for migrating backup images from your old appliances to Netbackup appliance 5240 . We have recently purchased 5240s and they have come-up with software version 3.1. The NBU migration utility seems pretty simple just 2-3 commands. But the document says it needs Fiber connectivity. Does this mean connect your old and new appliances with Fiber cables directly and run the command. Please explain if somebody has already tried this utility.
The fibre requirement is not listed as a requirement, just letting you know it can be done:
The migration can be performed from an MSDP to another MSDP through the Fibre Channel.
See NBA Fibre Channel Guide for more information about Fibre Channel replication.
