TSM to Networker migration

Hi,

I'm looking into options around phasing out the use of a shared TSM service (from a provider) and replacing it with an EMC Networker/Datadomain-based solution.

Does anyone have any recommendations as a good source of material on this?  I've Googled a fair bit but it's generally around Networker-to-TSM migrations, not vice versa as I'm looking for.  

Additionally, TSM is provided as a shared service from a hosting partner, so the ability to change it will be minimal, if at all (so example matching that are particularly sought after!)

TIA

you can not do it imho. you can only run in parallel for a while then decide to shut down the TSM.

Hmmm, I was kinda hoping that wouldn't be the case but it was looking ever more likely with every passing minute of searching and finding nothing!

I'll leave the question open for a while, just in case anyone has any good 'gotchas' or lessons learnt they can add to the thread from having  done the above.

it is unreal to migrate. the only way would be extract the data from TSM to some storage then back it up using networker. even then there would be issues with restoring the data if the data is something other than just files form filesystem
