I am looking for resources on how to upgrade our backup server. Our current configuration is Veeam Availability suite version 9.0, update 2 for B&R and update 1 for Veeam One with SQL Express 2012 on a physical windows server 2012R2 machine. Two hard disks in RAID1 for the OS and Veeam suite and six hard disks in RAID5 for the backup repository with data deduplication enabled.
What I would like to do is to format the OS volume and have a fresh install of Windows server 2016, then install Veeam availability suite 9.5 with SQL 2014.
My concern is how to backup and restore the configuration of B&R and ONE, including the backup jobs and historical data, how the backup repository will be seen in the installation to continue the backup jobs with the current backup chains and how the OS will behave with the volume being already deduplicated.
Any suggestions or resources describing similar upgrades would be appreciated.
