The server that I use for Backup Exec is failing.  I've set up a new server to take over the duties.  Is there a way to migrate/import all the settings and jobs and inventories from the old server to the new server?  Both are using 12.5

The best is that you do not migrate your database details at all, but copy your backup config etc. (unless u want to migrate the database as well)

configure your backup media server, as a fresh install, and configure the
on your old (dying) backup media server, click on Tools, Install Options and keys on this media server, and the windows installer will bring the license screen, click next and in the following screen <<see image>>
select copy server configurations and click next,finish. this will install the copy configuration option and will restrat your backup exec services.

Once complete, go to job setup section and click/select each backup selection list (and jobs and policies), right click and selet copy (not copy text) and select to the new media server option and migrate each job etc.

i suggest uoi do this as a pilot and have an image level backup of your old dying server before doing any work at all.
