Hey @Fernando Souza 

 

why not uninstall the commvault software from the old servers, and deploy to the new servers using the old names and hence assuming the identity of the old servers. That way you can keep everything the same.

Hello @Damian Andre 

It´s not possible to change the name of the servers.

Is there another type of copying a backup configuration to the new servers?

You could do a name change on the ‘clients’ to the new names…..that should work.  You’d basically be telling Commvault that the servers changed names from hostA to hostB (and hostb is the new server name).
