Replacing Tape Servers
You can replace the tape server with another tape server and continue to use the existing libraries and tapes with it.
To correctly replace a tape server:
- Physically disconnect libraries from the old tape server or disable the tape changer device and drives in the Device Manager on this tape server.
- Remove the old tape server from the tape infrastructure, as described in section Removing Tape Servers.
- Connect your existing tape devices to the new tape server, as described in section Connecting Tape Devices.
- Add a new tape server, as described in section Adding Tape Servers.
All the information about existing tapes will be preserved after switching to the new tape server.
