  • Rebuilding OS on CS
    Posted: 01-16-2020, 2:31 PM

    We're moving the CS from Win2012 R2 to Win2019.

    It's on a VM at this point so there's no hardware to deal with and no libraries on the CS. 

    The media agent module is actually disabled.


    After bringing down the old CS, building the new VM and installing the OS, the docs say it's simpler to "submit the database" dump from the old CS DR backup during the CS installation on the new CS VM as opposed to running a regular CS install and then doing a DR recovery from the old CS.


    Is there a downside or risk to this or is it basically the same with just fewer steps?

    Hi Kris 

    Both method will achieve the same goal, the DB retore during installation is a guided process to minimize the additional steps that are required post re-install of the CS install
