Re: [Veritas-bu] Can NBU 6.5 database be imported into NBU 7 / Upgrade with fresh O/S & NBU install steps
Yes Ed, from your many posts we all understand that your
situation allows you infinite time for testing, retesting, and more testing.
Kudos. I suspect you work for the government, probably never cross the street, except
at a crosswalk. However I work in a situation where this is an acceptable
shortcut, especially given that you have a untouched rock solid back out plan
(put the original master back into place.) I’ll try and remember to
disclaimer my comments in the future “This won’t appease Ed Wilts’
management, but for the rest of you it’s ok.” in the future.

Good point, however I suspect it would
work. My testing with 2008 and 2008 R2 shows the OS are similar, with the
exception of system state backups (new API by Microsoft required in R2).
If he was going to R2 I suppose you could build a 3rd 2008 server,
restore to that and then repeat to get to R2. I guess it depends on how much
testing you are willing to commit to make the solution happen.
There's a big difference
between "I suspect it would work" and "it's supported by the
vendor". Do you KNOW what will happen if you log a call on your
Windows 2008 R2 6.5.x master server? Are you going to be satisfied with
them telling you to downgrade away from R2 or upgrading to NUB 7.0 before they
help you? Is your management happy with "suspect" and
"guess"? I know mine wouldn't be.
