Does Backup Exec Get Grumpy If You Rename Your Server?
We've recently had a new SAN put in, and a whole bunch of virtual servers now reside on our network. As Capita are apparently reluctant to support SIMS running on a virtual server we have kept the old SIMS server as is, but the server was renamed in line with the new naming scheme (we differentiate between virtual or physical servers with "vs" or "ps" in the name).
So, the server was renamed and joined to the new domain. SIMS works fine but our backups aren't running properly. Most of the backup exec services haven't started and won't start manually either.
We've been speculating as to what might cause this, just in case there's an expert here who knows for sure, would our renaming of the server effect backup exec or are we barking up the wrong tree?
