we have two master servers with different NBU versions 8.1.2 with RHEL 7 and NBU 188.8.131.52 RHWL 7.9. We are going to decommission 8.1.2 master server.
As we aware of that all policy configuration files saved under NetBackup/db/class/*. I want to copy polices under class folder from NetBackup master 8.1.2 which is hosted RHEL 7 to another NetBackup/db/class/ of NetBackup Mater server 184.108.40.206 hosted on RHEL 7.9.
what is best way to copy the polices files from one master server(8.1.2) to another master (220.127.116.11)without overwriting and should not affect existing polices.
policy attributes are slightly changing accross NBU versions, so you will have to run 9.1 bpplconvert after the copying.
I also recommend to deactivate source 8.1.2 policies first.
You will likely have to fix storage unit/volume pools/etc names after the copy+convert.
Duplicites/not overwriting the existing policies - you must deal with this carefullyon your own, there is not tool for this, since you are just copying the files.
