Migrate from DP 6.10 (Windows 2008) to DP 10.x (Windows 2016)


Currently planning to build a new Windows 2016 server and configure DP 10.6 to take over from the current Windows 2008 server with DP 6.10.

I've been trying to find a way to migrate the internal DB and backup policies over to the new server. It'll be using a new FQDN instead of re-using the old name as we'll be placing the new server in a new domain. However, I can't seem to find an easier way other than to redo each policy from scratch since the current version is pretty old.

If I deploy the new server's HP DP agents to the old server, would it stop the current backup?

Would it be possible to configure the new backup server first before cutover?

Any help would be truly appreciated.
