Is there any way to copy backups from one commserver to another commserver? That is, to move backups between infrastructures with different CCID.

I have the situation where I have customers who have backups on an older Commvault infrastructure and they want to move their Backup service with another provider without losing the long retention backups.

I don't see any other possibility than importing tapes or restoring and copying old backups. Both options do not seem viable to me.

I don't think so, but I wanted to ask the community if anyone knows of a way to transfer those backups between Commvault infrastructures.

To move the jobs from one CommCell to another you will need to do a CommCell Migration as shown here:

This will allow you to move the jobs to the new CommCell.

Please let me know if this is helpful.

Please note that once migrated the data becomes restore only - a new client should be created to continue with backups going forward
