    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to the archiving stuff and have an environment coming from V9 to actually V10SP11.

    In V9 FileArchiver on Windows Server were used to Archive NAS Shares (on a NetApp FAS).

    Now in the middle of V10 CV introduced OnePass also for NAS and marks the classical Archiver as deprecated.

    My question is regarding to the old, already archived stuff after I introduce the new NAS OnePass configuration.
    Will this data still be accessible after "migrating" the Agent ? Or do I need to keep the old archiver for retrieval ?

    currently there are two Windows Server available for Restore, while only one is doing the archiving job.
    If I introduce new clients to be used as "proxy" for the CiFS Shares, can they also be used for the retrieval of the former archived stuff ?

    What changes are nessecary in the FPolicy to enable future archive / restore functionality ?

    best regards

    This BOL Link should assist you in transition from Classic Archiver to OnePass. 

    Transitioning from Traditional Archiver to Simpana OnePass Agent

    Note In this documentation Section:

    Once the archiving has been disabled, do not delete the archive set / agent. This will allow for the recovery of archived data. Do not delete the Storage Policy associated with the Archiver subclient as the Stub Recall and Browse and Restore operations will be still using the data from this Storage Policy.


    Hope you are not using NetApp C-mode, if you do then I would suggest a call-in.

    Thanx RAJ,

    my setup is 7-mode, so I'm probably fine.
    wasn' sure how to "merge" the old HSM with the new stuff, but now learned that the old will stay old (index bound to archiver client) , while the new archives will be new and bound to the NAS Client.

    the fpolicy will point to / address the new archiving proxies and the old stuff can still be retrieved by them although "owned" by / associated to a different "client"
