This book is for consultants and system administrators who need to migrate, clone or obsolete an instance of HP Data Protector. • How to duplicate an existing cell manager on to a new system (one with new hardware, virtualised hardware, or a new operating system). • How to merge two cells into one, leaving you with one less cell manager than before. In Data Protector version 7 and earlier there were a lot of limitations on the size of a Data Protector cell and how much a cell manager could do. This meant that many customers had several cells -- in version 8 and onwards this is not really necessary. This book walks step-by-step through how you would consolidate cell managers. Read this book before you start planning your next Data Protector upgrade.
