Arcserve 2000 Database migration

Can you move an existing database from on server to another?

My goal is to retain the backup catalog so if need be I don't have to merge the tape sets.

Yes you can.

If you are talking about moving it from one ARCserve server to another you have to make sure that both copies are at the exact same code level.

First off this is for the defalt VLDB database and not SQL.

Stop all the ARCserve services
Close the ARCserve manager
Copy the complete database subdirectory
delete the r*.* files

The "r" files will be automaticly recreated when ARCserve is brought back up.

In this way you can keep point in time copies of the database.

Another alternative is to do a Recover Database which will replace the existing database with one that was backed up to tape. Any time the volume were ARCserve is installed on is backed up a copy of the database is written to tape. It is also an option that can be selected for any backup.
