Backup Exec Migration Assistant



Assists in moving an installation of Backup Exec from one server to another and upgrading to the current version of Backup Exec


Veritas Backup Exec™ Migration Assistant lets you migrate your data from one Backup Exec server (source) to another Backup Exec server (destination).


The Migration Assistant migrates all Backup Exec configuration and data from the source server to destination server. The migration does not modify the original database or the configuration on the source server. You can continue using the source server if you face any issues with the migration.


The Backup Exec version on the destination server must be installed with the local SQL instance for the Backup Exec Database.


For this version of the utility, the Backup Exec Migration Assistant is available only in English.


The Migration Assistant can migrate the following:

1. Backup Exec Database (required)

The Backup Exec Database includes configuration information about jobs (logs and definitions), storage, and logon account information

2. Catalogs (required)

3. Disk storage devices (aka Backup-To-Disk Folders)

4. Job history files

5. Custom reports
