Just yesterday I migrated my B&R server to a new W2012 R2 (so I can deal with deduped windows file restore) following roughly the KB1889. However, this documentation lacks two vital steps (one of which I managed to struggle through).
1. In order to 'Perform configuration backup restore' (step 4) on the 'new' server, it cannot 'see' the old server unless you first add the old server to the new server infrastructure. (I managed to do this, as I worked out that it was the only way).
2. To my cost, I have also discovered that I should have moved the 'replica metadata' which doesn't seem to come across with the configuration (OK I realise that the metadata COULD be stored anywhere, but I guess many, like me, just went for the easy option of 'store it on the B&R server'). This means that my replication jobs of last night are still running, and likely to be running well into the day, possibly over 24 hours, as they are busy 'calculating digests' afresh.
I don't want to risk stopping the jobs and move the metadata (now I've found where it is).
Would have been good to mention this somewhere in KB1889 please. And/or is there a better place to store the replica metadata? (We are all LAN, no off-site WAN moves.)
