It will work the same way. It

It will work the same way.

It is sometimes easier, just to delete the devices and re-run the wizard.  This is what I tend to do.

tpautoconf -replace_robot

tpautoconf -replace_robot robot_number -path robot_path

      After robotic controller hardware replacement, correct the
      serial number in the local and Global Databases
 
The tpautoconf command is used a lot when replacing drives... maybe not so much for robots. But I got to assume the command above would work similarly.
 
You should look at TN
has a lot of links to other TN's that should show you the steps or method.

delete any drives you are

delete any drives you are removing and re-discover newly connected drive from the wizard or with tpautoconf -a

There are several ways to get

There are several ways to get the same result. I would do the same as Martin suggests.

Stop backups from running. Use the Policy Execution Manager. Using these commands can control whether new backups will run. And perform maintenance while either PEM is terminated or suspended.

 

nbpemreq -terminate
# This will stop the nbpem daemon and the associated nbpem_email and nbproxy processes.
 
nbpem
# This will start the nbpem daemon
 
nbpemreq -suspend_scheduling
# This will stop the nbpem daemon from scheduling backups.  Manual backups can still be initiated.
 
nbpemreq -resume_scheduling
# This will allow the nbpem daemon to resume normal scheduling of backups.
 


Move the tapes to standalone first maybe. So not attached to the robot number.

 

Delete all tape and robot information.
Delete remove any device info from the OS.
Then connect/ add the new hardware via the device configuration wizard in Netbackup.

Put the tapes into the new slots of the robot chassis

inventory the robot. And run test backup.
