Moving CA Brightstor Arcserve for linux to a new SuSe box, trying to retain jobs and database.

I have  SuSe 9 box A, and SuSe 9 box B (destination)

I have a fresh installation on my destination server, works fine. Now I'd like my jobs and the database from the old server.
So I'm sure, cstop, go through, make sure everything is actually stopped. Make sure ingstop ran, ect ect.
Then is it just a matter of copying the files over into the new installation? (They have the same install paths)

If so does anyone know the specifics of which directories to bring over?

I referenced this which is what brought me to this website.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Storage/Misc/Q_22542213.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+arcserv+move+server

The only difference is he's doing it on windows, and the files that dm told him to get don't seem to be exactly the same in linux?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi

Few basics first. Is the name of the server going to be the same.

because the backup job scripts save the name of the backup server and you cannot modify the jobs but yes you can save them as job scripts and open them see the selections.

Are performing simple file level backups or do you backup any DBs like oracle, mysql, and applications like apache.

The backup information and historical information is stored in the database so you can run backup of the ingress database and restore it to the other server.

But you need to check the config files.

The arcserve install is generally on /opt/CA/Brighstor Arcserve Backup folder.

revert back with details so that we can suggest a solution.

hi jrizzle01

any update on the migration of your database. Refer to this articles on CA website on how to export the ingress database and import the ingress database.

this is for unix/linux

the second one is more elaborate
