CA Arcserve - TSM


Active Newcomer
Many years ago my company backed up it's servers with CA Arcserve. Today we are using TSM. The old Arcserve server was decomissioned. We have now been asked to restore a Lotus Notes file from ten years ago that was backed up with Arcserve. We still have the Arcserve tapes, but no Arcserve server. Is there a product out there that will convert Arcserve backups to TSM. From old posts, I have seen Butterfly Software mentioned, but I'm unable to get any current info on them.

Even with Butterfly you'd need the old Arcserve server to be up and running in order to migrate to Spectrum Protect.

Short of finding an Arcserve server, you are likely out of luck. Unless you find people in the Arcserve forum that have other tricks up their sleeve.
