Replacing existing Veeam server

Post by vmbackupuser »

I'm planning to replace our existing Veeam Backup 4.0 server with a newer model.
I'm looking for advice on he best way to proceed after VB4 / MS SQL Express is installed on the new server & ESX LUNs presented to Veeam server etc...

Would it be OK to re-create all the existing VB4 jobs on the new server, and point the new jobs to the existing destination folders where the previously created vbk & vrb's already reside?

Or would it be best to use the newly recreated VB4 jobs to initiate full backups?

Hello Sip,

Basically, in order to keep all your configurations and not to re-create all the jobs you may move your old Veeam DB to a new machine, and point Veeam Backup and Replication to that DB during the setup process, the easiest way to move Veeam to another machine.

Thank you.
