Can Backup Exec restore files from an old archived tape that's not in the database?
Posted on 2008-06-19
I have Symantec Backup Exec 12d installed on a newer server. In the past, Backup Exec had been on a completely different machine. I had to do a "clean install" on the new machine because I had some problems migrating the database to the new machine.
I need to know if Backup Exec (on new machine) can restore files from a tape that was backed up by the old database on the old machine. My current Backup Exec has no pre-existing knowledge of this tape in question.
If it is possible, I need to know the steps involved in order to restore that data.
