We have a W2K server running Netbackup ver 5.1MP4. It is the master server. There are no other Netbackup servers in the environment. I have been tasked with moving the setup onto a Windows 2003 server. I have a collegue that has put together a migration plan and we believe that it is solid. However,  I'm looking for any advice, tips, hints, etc. to use in conjunction with our plans. Thanks in advance for your help.

We performed the same type of migration recently.  We had a Windows 2000 server with 5.1 MP2 and wanted to upgrade the server OS to 2003.  Basically we took a copy of the netbackup directory ( 2 actually, 1 to tape and 1 to disk on a file server ) blew the machine away and performed a clean install of windows 2003 server.  We then did a clean install of netbackup 5.1 mp2 and restored the config and catalogue.  We have several media servers at several other locations so keeping the same server name and address were critical to our upgrade.  Would you consider posting your plan ?
