Need to know if various AS-B footprints and their databases are interchangeable.
There are several different footprints and versions of the AS-B hardware. This can cause confusion on whether these servers are interchangeable. Below are are few example scenarios:
- Can an AS-B-24 be replaced with an AS-B-24-L?
- Can a backup from and AS-B-36-L be restored into an AS-B-24?
- Can a backup from and AS-B-24-L be restored into an AS-B-36-L?
The answer to all of the above scenarios is "No". The various AS-B hardware ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE. Backupsets can only be restored from one AS-B to another AS-B of the EXACT SAME HARDWARE TYPE. If an import of one type of AS-B into a AS-B of a different hardware type is attempted, the error below will be encountered.
