I would think that keeping the current server would be an option for you.
I would have done the same if we didn't have a multitude of images saved to 
infinity...
Our old master would have been around forever, so I just did the migration...
Good Luck!

Subject: [Veritas-bu] Netbackup 7.1 Migration

Thank You all for your replies. I have to change the hostname and IP address, 
there is no other option. We currently have installed the master server on a 
production server. Its not a dedicated backup server. The new server we are 
planning is a dedicated NBU master server. So the hostname will change from the 
current server :-(

I think i would go with Jeff' idea of building new server from scratch and 
importing media from old server to new server in case of restore requests. 

Can we use the option of keeping current server and as well as new server till 
the data on the current tapes expire?
Remove all the tapes from current server and keep it write protected. Stop the 
NBU services on current server. Whenever a restore request comes, stop the 
services on new server and restore data from old server. 

Thanks
Sri
