DPM 2012 R2 - Migrate DPMDB from Local to Remote SQL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    Our DPM 2012 R2 instance sits on a Windows Server 2008 R2 host that is running low on C:\ capacity. The DPMDB has grown to almost 10GB, so I'm looking to migrate this to a remote SQL server.

    Would someone kindly be able to detail the procedure to allow me to achieve this migration?

    Should any further detail be required I am happy to supply.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hello,

    You can use this TechNet article :

    Another way is to backup the DB, transfer it to the new server, and reinstall the DPM server, as said in the article.

  • Hi,

    Yes, and make sure that the new installation of DPM has the same Update Rollup installed before restoring the original DPMDB and before running DPMSYNC -Sync command.

  • OK brilliant, so it's an uninstall, reinstall effectively.

    Many thanks!
