I have to replace our current backup repository servers with new hardware, storage with all images will be connected from current to new server. To have a smooth process, my plan would be the follow:
- stop all veeam services
- setup new server with same os, name, drive layout, directories, ip, users and password as old one
- start veeam again, let veeam check server and install required software
My question is, will that work? Because I've got TBs of backup data I cannot move data from old to new server. My timeframe is about 12 hours, then it must run again. Setup of the new server could be done before, so just move old one out and new one in is critical.
Any thoughts, or points to obey?
