2737: Upgrading Acronis Backup Server to Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Storage Node

You can install Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Storage Node on the same machine as Acronis Backup Server, or on a different machine

Introduction

Storage Node can be installed on the same machine as Acronis Backup Server, or on a different machine.

If you want to import Acronis Backup Server's locations as Storage Node's centralized vaults, you must install Storage Node on the same machine as Acronis Backup Server.

(!) Importing Acronis Backup Server's locations as centralized vaults facilitates access to the Acronis True Image Echo archives stored in them. No Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 archives can be created in these vaults.

(!) To access Acronis Backup Server's locations after the upgrade procedure is performed, Acronis Storage Node should operate under an account with administrative privileges. It is not allowed to change a service’s user name manually via the Services snap-in – it can only be changed by reinstalling Acronis Backup & Recovery 10.

Solution

  1. Install Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Storage Node. See Installation of Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Storage Node;
  2. Import Acronis Backup Server's locations. See Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Upgrade Tool.

More information

Coexistence of Acronis Backup Server and Storage Node after importing locations as centralized vaults:

  • Storage Node accesses the corresponding centralized vaults in the read-only mode: you can view the vaults' contents and recover data from their archives, but no archives can be deleted from the vaults.
