Data Protector Cell Manager
We've just inherited Data Protector and are new to this application. Currently, we have both cell manager and media server on the same server. We would like to move cell manager to another server. Would you point me to the right direction and show me any document, whitepaper abour how to do that.
Could you please let us know what is the Data Protector version? and OS (include architecture) that you are using with the Cell Manager at this moment and What will be the specifications for the new Cell Manager?
moving the CM to another machine is quite an involved operation (where we define move as moving the installation to a box with another IP address, hostname and maybe file system structure), while moving away the MA is trivial. As such, you might rethink what you are planning. If the intention is e.g. to P2V the original CM+MA box so the CM becomes a virtual machine, while the physical box is reduced to a media server for the tape libraries (or something like that), you may still consider to P2V the entire machine keeping hostname, IP address and file system structure, then rebuild the physical box with a blank OS and finally move the MA away from the VM to the "new" physical media server.
