Move Backups to be used with a new server

Post by energizedit » February 6th, 2019, 3:54 pm

I am migrating accounts from server A to server B server
Server A has been backing up accounts with jetbackup monthly, to an ssh (ftp) server.
On the backup storage server I want to move the backups to another directory where server B is now pointing for jetbackup, and have server B jetbackup see the previous backups.

How do I do this?

backup server directories look like this:

Do I just move this directory to /home/serverB/monthly/accounts/ and then do a reindex?

Each backup is located in an identified backup directory. This dir is synced with the JetBackup database.
Additionally, each backup is holding an index file that contains the backup path.

For those reasons, backups Can't be transferred between servers or directories.

if you need help with a specific account, please open a support ticket and our team will be happy to assist you.
