Hi Folks,
we're in the process of replacing one of our TSM servers.
Old machine is TSM on Solaris,
New machine is TSM on Win2k3.

To minimize impact on the clients I thought of this:
1. ex/import all nodes/schedules/domains... to new server (some with data, some without)
2. swap IP-addresses of the servers
3. disable sessions on old server, enable on new one
4. hope it works...

Now TSM learns the IP-address of a client at first contact. So the question is, will the new server import the client address and initiate the incremental correctly? If I have to manually touch every client, I can also go through a step-by-step migration and adjust the optfile to the new servers' IP.

Anybody has tried this already?

Best regards,
