How to promote a media server to a primary SAN SSO Server.
During the reconfiguration process, a fresh copy of the Backup Exec (tm) database is created and installed on the target media server. Although other media servers in the SAN SSO storage area network will point to the new primary server after the reconfiguration finishes, all job configurations contained in the original primary SAN SSO server's Backup Exec database must be recreated.
To promote a media server as a primary SAN SSO server, perform the following:
1. On the media server pane, under Media Server Groups, click a media server group containing at least two media servers
2. Right-click a media server group containing at least two media servers or on the Task pane, under SAN SSO Tasks, click Promote Primary SAN SSO Server
3. Select the name of the media server to be promoted
Promote Primary SAN SSO Server Options
|Servers||List the name of the Media Servers that comprise the Media Server group|
|Primary SAN SSO Server||The name of the Media Server to be promoted. The target Media Server is selected from the list of Media Servers that appear in the servers field.|
4. Click OK
5. After the operation finishes, click Close on the Operation Progress screen
Note: The GUI would look different depending on the version of Backup Exec being used, however the configuration steps are same.
