MediaAgent recovery is the process of rebuilding the MediaAgent when it is permanently offline. For example, due to hardware crash or network issues.
This process involves the following phases:
Set up and configure the new computer to be ready for the MediaAgent recovery.
Install and configure the MediaAgent.
Test the new MediaAgent and de-commission the old MediaAgent.
Migrating MediaAgent to New Hardware
If you want to upgrade the operating system or hardware of the MediaAgent computer, you can migrate the existing MediaAgent to the new hardware using MediaAgent Refresh. See MediaAgent Hardware Refresh.
Use the 1-Touch recovery process to recover and rebuild the operating system and file system data on a single client or multiple clients with the same or different hardware configurations. You can recover systems with defective components, such as inaccessible volumes or crashed disks, without installing the individual software packages or operating systems manually.
