Migrating to different hardware

Recommended Posts

I know that it's practically impossible to do a restore to a new server/workstation using a backup set from a different server/workstation (unless you're using Mac OS, but that's a different topic :-). What I would like to ask EMC/Insignia is to add some kind of feature into future versions of Retrospect that might ease the MIGRATION from old to new hardware.


For example, let's say that I have a complex server config on a dual PIII server, and I want to migrate the data/operating system to a newer, Xeon based system without having to re-set everything from the old system on the new system. If Retrospect could be use to ease this process, that would make it even the more useful in our organization.


Commends, EMC?
