I am trying to work out the best way to migrate a tape library (SL500) from ARCserve to CV. The library is currently configured into virtual library pools, by drive type using all available tape slots. This was doen using the ARCserve software not at the library level.
I now need to use at least one drive and some of teh tape slots for CV backup as we start to migrate from ARCserve to CV9. Does anyone have any experience of doing this migration with ARCserve? If so do you have any tips for this migration?
From the documentation it looks like you have to delete the existing virtual libraries to reconfigure it. Does this cause issues with existing backups? Once deleted I can recreate the virtual library with one drive and a reduced number of slots. I susect that this will then allow me to use the drive and slots in CV but can't find too many details on any other settings that are required to make sure that both solutions can use the library at the same time. My main concern is the impact on deleting the library has on the backup jobs.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
