Merging storage domains

Initial install of DPE 4.0 (NOT single server edition) was incorrect - instead of one storage domain that included three W2K3 servers to be backed up to an HP D2D2503i, we have three separate domains, one for each server. None of them can see each other through their DPE Administrator GUI, but all can see and backup to the D2D.

To correct the situation, it appears that DPE must be reinstalled on all machines, with the 2nd and 3rd joining into one domain... after that's done, how can the old catalog databases, one per server, be imported? Is there a way to avoid losing the configuration and all backed up data?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Re: Merging storage domains

For the 2nd and 3rd server, if you had backup the catalog for each server (2 and 3) you can do an import media from the domain(Main server). So it will keep the path of each file and to wich server it belongs to.

But not sure if it will keep those jobs created in server 2 and 3.
