Hello @Diego Biondo

The new CELL B have the same hostname? 

Make sure that you do the writedb in the same DP version.

I think I know which steps you received (I was working with the engineer in your case). 

I will recommend to run another command before the remap: omnidbutil -change_cell_name. 

So the owner will change to the new one.

4.Stop the DP services(omnisv -stop)

5.Copy the folder called depot (ProgramData\Omniback\depot)  and copy it on C:\IDB_dump

6.Copy the folders of the output  from the Writedb  command on C:\IDB_dumpa.(DCBF0-5, meta, msg)

7.Copy the folder called “Server”fromProgramData\OmniBack\Configinto C:\IDB_dump

8.Uninstall  Data Protectorand delete  all the folders relatedwith DP (Omniback)

9.Install Data Protector (Same version as the original)
