[MERGED] Migrate backup respositry

Post by briggs » May 25, 2018 1:47 pm

Hi,
Simple question, simple problem.

I backup currently to network shares. Those shares are hosted on a NAS box. The NAS boxes are being replaced...

Is it a simple case of pausing all my jobs, copying all my data, and changing the repositry config in Veeam? Or is there a proper process to follow.
Thanks, Alan

[MERGED] Backup Copy clarification

Post by marius roma » Apr 30, 2019 2:55 pm

I need some clarification about backup copy.
Imagine a backup job that keeps 10 restore points on a given repository and a backup copy job that created 10 resotre points on a different repository.
I need to move all the backup copy data from the second repository to a third repository.
If I create a new backup copy job pointing to the third repository and start it, how many restore points should I expect to have on the third repository?
If the new backup copy job does not create 10 restore points, should I copy manually all the data from the second to the third repository before creating the new backup copy job?
Regards
marius

Hi Mario, backup copy job will create a single restore point corresponding to the latest VM state. To keep all the restore points you currently have on the second repository, you need to copy them over to the third one, rescan it, and map the job to the copied files. You can even continue using the existing backup copy job, just re-point it to the new repository.
