Hi Team,
We have one netbackup master server which is on x86 windows 2003 running netbackup 6.5.6 with two tape libraries LTO2/LTO3 respectively.
We have procured a new mastter server which is on 064 windows 2008 R2 with netbackup with EMC data domain DD890.
Now we have to migrate all the backups from old master server to the new master server.
I have following questions
Is it possible to migrate netbackup from one hardware to another ? I know the the netbackup master serve name has to be the same but can it have a differnet IP  ???
I was thinking first upgrading the exisisting server to 7.5 and connect it to data domain and move all the backups to data domain storage units and then migrate to new hardware. Is this the right approach or is there a better approach.??
Please guide many of you might have upgraded from 6.5. Please through ideas.
