How to move backups to a new storage node


To move backups from an existing Acronis Storage Node to a new one, please follow the steps below:

1. Install the second Acronis Storade Node on another machine

2. In Windows Explorer, open the folder with an existing vault. Copy all the meta-files and folder Computers under Windows Explorer from the existing vault to a new one

3. In Acronis Management Server, go to Add location, select the new Storage Node and specify the path to the new folder (where you placed meta-files and Computers folder) in the Path field: 

Acronis Management Server will pull the location name and other parameters from metadata automatically. You can configure the remaining parameters manually
