Migrate B&R to new server

Post by Sprite » Jul 08, 2019 8:54 am

Hi - any advice on the following would be useful.

I have a Svr 2008r2 physical veeam server (domain bound), which is also one of the repository servers. I plan on moving the B&R application and DB to a new server 2016 VM (workgroup). The current plan involves using the configuration backup method as per KB1889 https://www.veeam.com/kb1889.

However, I only want to move the B&R application and DB, I want to leave the repository on the 2008r2 physical svr for the time being. The new 2016 VM will have a different IP and computer name to the original 2008r2 server.

Assuming I follow the migration steps as per KB 1889, there will also be the need to uninstall the B&R application from the old Veeam server, will it just be a case of re-scanning the various repositories? Will Veeam B&R play nicely with the old physical server following the migration?

Any thoughts would be useful.
Regards

Hi,

Basically you need to move VBR first, and then add another repo (the old server), rescan it, remap the existing jobs to the 'old' repo.

Thanks
