To set up a new MediaAgent, perform the following tasks in the order listed:

  1. Install and configure the MediaAgent software on the new computer.

  2. Migrate libraries to the new MediaAgent.

  3. Configure Alternate Data Paths for Copies. Re-establish the data path to the new MediaAgent for all the Storage Policies that were associated with the old MediaAgent.

  4. Recover the Offline Deduplication Database (DDB) Partitions to the new MediaAgent.

  5. Enable job operations on each client.

Note: The index will be automatically restored in the new MediaAgent after it is set up. You do not need to perform any additional step to restore the index.
