Change of appliance/master media set up & reporting

Level 4

I currently have 2 NBU 5200 appliances and these are both individual master/media servers. For OPscenter (non analytics) reports I use the viewbuilder and have added in the server objects to create the reports from both appliances (as I use air replication/SLP to replicate the data to the other appliance).

I am in a position now to add a new server to be the master and set up 2 new appliances which will be media servers and will eventually take over from the existing appliances.

How do I deal with the OPScenter reporting aspect of this situation? Given that the original appliances will still be retained for their backup data and recoveries?



Has anyone experience in this situation? I am imagining that I will have to recreate all views etc to include the new server objects from the new master server?

Any info much appreciated.

I should state that I am retaining the OPScenter server in the new set up....which I am expecting will also see the existing appliances and the new master server....

Does this mean that when the new master server is added in, that the server objects will be seen as new server objects (relating to that new master server)


Essentially I believe I have a lot of configuration work to achieve the new master server and the reporting/alerting that I have upon backup failures..

Ok, I now have the new master server in place, but I still have all my old views showing the server objects attached to the old master server. Is there a way I can bring in the new objects into the same views - or would I be quicker creating them all again with the new server objects?
