Move old data to new repository

Post by dirkvdw » Apr 17, 2019 7:33 am

We need to move all backup data from a Fujitsu CentricStor library to a new disk storage repository. This works fine with a “Restore from Tape to Repository” job.
In order to restore the previous version of the VM, we have to select the previous restore point , VM per VM. As it concerns the data of about 1 year, it is not feasible to do it via the GUI.
Does someone has a sample script that allows to copy data of an existing repository to another. Any ideas?

Regards, Dirk.

By existing repository you refer to tape library holding tapes with backup files on them, right? Thanks!

Yes, the old repository is a Fujitsu Centricstore, defined as VTL.

You can try to find restore points located on tapes, using Get-VBRRestorePoint cmdlet, and, then, restore them either to Repository or Server, using Start-VBRTapeRestore cmdlet.

However, those are obsolete cmdlets and might work unexpectedly, so, I'd test them first before writing a full script.

Thanks!
