Moving catalogs from one Backup Exec install to another

mce-man-it asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-01
We have two sites (Site A and Site B) each with their own tape drive (both HP LTO-4) and installation of BackupExec 12.5

We are removing the tape drive from Site B and I'd like to be able to do restores of their data from Site A if possible.

How do I go about moving the catalogs from Site B to Site A to allow me to do this, is it as simple as copying the C:\program files\symantec\backupexec\catalogs folder and merging it with the current one then having the tapes available when neccesary?
