Server Migration - Reconfiguration roles

Post by nurbi76 » Oct 14, 2013 10:31 am

Hi, I have a question about a change of design of a veeam site.
I want to change role to different servers in a veeam 7.0 envionment. there's a backup proxy in site A, a veeam server in site B and repository in site C. Is it possible to change the Server service from site B to site A without loose all veeam configuration? Is there a sort of migration path?

Thank you

bye nick

Nick, do you probably want to backup Veeam B&R configuration and restore it to another server?

Also, if you want to change roles assigned to this or that particular server, you can do it without any issues. All you need to do is to re-assign/delete currently used server from backup console and re-add the server with whatever role you want to.

Thanks.

thank you all. So, for examples if I want to move veeam server role to another server I need just to install backup console to that server? How can backup veaam configuration?

Thankyou

Yes, if you want to migrate VB&R management server from one machine to the other, backup configuration is the best way to go. The configuration can be backed up by going to Menu -> Configuration Backup -> Backup now.

Thanks.
