We had a media agent that was recently decommissioned. The location in which the media agent was located was shut down. The server was shipped to our site where we have it ready to be cabled up and redeployed. The initial thought from my colleagues is that we had to get this media agent back online in order for index cash on that server to be used again. But my management is asking whether or not we can just transfer the media agents index cash from that server to another media agent?
So instead of having to rehook up this media agent in order for the tapes that came from this location to be read, that we can move the index cache that was on this server to another media agent, and then any tapes that came from this site would then just read from a current active media agent for its index cash?
