Iíd like to start discussion about best practices for migration from one backup solution (BU1) to another (BU2). What triggers migration in a first place? I understand there are no utilities that allow direct migration from BU1 to BU2, so there are only two options:
- Donít do any new backups with BU1 but keep all BU1 tapes until retention policy expires
- Recover BU1 tapes to a disk and then backup up data with BU2
What are the pros and cons for each option? Could you share your real world experiences?
