Migrating to a new Virtual Jukebox
Posted by Sven Koester, Last modified by Andre Kuehnemund on 10 May 2011 12:04
The Virtual Jukebox in PresSTORE holds the path where the data is stored on the disk.
In case the data files (the virtual tapes) shall be migrated to another disk, follow these steps:

  • Make sure there are no jobs active in PresSTORE that affect the jukebox or the affected virtual tapes
  • Copy or move the data files to the new drive (from outside PresSTORE, e.g. with a file manager).
  • Delete the old Jukebox (in case it is no longer needed or in case the license is required for the new jukebox).
  • Create the new Jukebox on the destination path.
  • Start an inventory command from the Jukebox Manager Menu: Edit -> Inventory Jukebox
That's it, the volumes are now on the new Jukebox.

Two points that may be worth mentioning:
  • When deleting a jukebox in PresSTORE, the data files and the according virtual tapes in PresSTORE remain unchanged.
  • When migrating to a jukebox with a different volume size, the data files are adjusted to the new size when they are recycled.
