  • Reading disk library from older version/different Commcell
    Posted: 12-06-2017, 8:07 PM

    We have two Commcells: an old legacy v8 environment and a newer v11 environment.

    Is it possible to attach a disk library that was used by a v8 media agent to a media agent in the newer v11 Commcell?  And once I do this, would I be able to inventory/catalog the backup data in this disk library and restore the data?

    Thank you

    Since there are two separate CommCells invovled, there's no easy way to go about it. A CommCell Merge would have to be involved. You may want to pursue this via a support ticket to ensure there are no caveats between a v8 and v11 merge, and to ensure the data is accessible.
