Replacing a Data Protector client with new hardware
My production HP-UX server is being replaced with new HP-UX hardware. I want the new hardware to continue to be a DP client, using the same name and IP address as the old. How (and when) do I do this so the name remains the same and I can restore from the previous backups. I assume I have to push the client software out to the new box, but when do I do that? After I have switched the name/IP?
Re: Replacing a Data Protector client with new hardware
Is the new machine a actual client, or is it the Cell Manager?
If it is just the client, after it is installed and up and running, in the Client context of the GUI, right-click on the hostname and pick Add Components, and add in any components you had previously installed. if this server was doing any Application backups, you will have to redo the Integration
If it is the Cell Manager, I would advise that you make a backup of the IDB ( which includes the Configuration files) onto Tape, and run the commands
