Do the following in the order listed:
After the restore job completes, you must configure Enterprise Vault to use the new name of the SQL database server.
At each Enterprise Vault server, use Enterprise Vault to change the name of the previous SQL Server computer. Change the name to the name of the SQL Server computer that now holds the Directory database.
Restart the Enterprise Vault Admin service on all Enterprise Vault servers that use the Directory database.
Two Directory names appear in the backup selections view after you restart the Enterprise Vault Admin service on the Enterprise Vault server.
For example, Directory on <OldSQL_computer_name> and Directory on <NewSQL_computer_name>).
In Backup Exec, on the navigation bar, click the arrow next to Backup.
Expand Directory on <SQL server computer where you moved the Directory database>.
Expand all items under Directory on <SQL server computer where you moved the Directory database>.
The Directory and Monitoring databases, along with the Enterprise Vault sites, should appear. In addition, the Directory database should display the new SQL Server name and instance where it was redirected.
When you configure a new Directory database backup job, you must select the Directory database from the current Directory server. Backup Exec automatically removes the previous Directory server name 13 days after you complete the Directory database move.
To manually remove the previous server name, right-click the server name.
