Hey Roel,

There are a few scenario's that can happen in that case. Please look here for information: https://www.veeam.com/kb2649
Second: You can use the Veeam Agent for Windows to create a backup of that physical server and use bare metal recovery to recover the entire server

Hope it helps
Mike

Roel,

OS Disc should be enough, but that does mean that you have a way of recovering the QNAP data if something goes wrong. If not, then you are talking a risk but I guess you have a solution for that :-)

Hi Mike

My VBO and VBR are one physical machine .
I noticed today that the system drive (c:) is almost full.
I want to migrate to new physical server.
What is the best to do it?
1) unmount QNAP LUN to old host
2) mount LUN to new host
3) install VBR en VBO on new server
3) Restore configuration backup to new
VBR server
4) configure VBO on new server . Jobs ,Proxy ...

Hi Roel,

As per the KB:
The following prerequisites are required to carry out the procedure:
  • The new server ready for VBO installation should have the same version of Windows
This requirement is valid for both VBO server and its default proxy, which is technically the same machine than your VBO server is on.

Roel,

I don't believe we QC tested this. However, as far as I know, that should not cause any issues. The only thing where I have a question is around the JetDB technology. Since we use the internal Jet DB engine, it might be that there is a difference after the upgrade.

Since it is a physical server, do you have the possibility to use Veeam Agent for Windows and do a test-upgrade. Again, I don't expect any issues but you never know and I prefer to play it on the safe side :-)

Hi Mike

Roel,

No, don't see a problem with that. You might loose the connection to that disk after the upgrade and might need to reconnect. Otherwise, I see no problem
