    Upgrading Product from Version 1.0

To be able to restore data from such backups, you need to copy product configuration files before you upgrade Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris 1.0 to a newer version.

    To do this, complete the following steps:

    1. Copy Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris 1.0 configuration files from the product installation directory to a separate directory on the Veeam Agent machine or to a network shared folder. These configuration files are required to restore data from backups created with Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris 1.0. The following files are required:
    • /etc/veeam/devices.ini

    This file contains information about backup locations configured in Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris 1.0.

    • /etc/veeam/ubax.ini

    This file contains information about the default backup location specified in Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris 1.0.

    • /etc/veeam/scripts/veeam.scp (or custom script that you specified in Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris 1.0 backup settings)

    This file is required to restore data from a Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris 1.0 full backup using a restore script.
