Replace HBA cards in Hyper V host running DPM virtual servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows 2012R2 Hyper-V host server that hosts 2 DPM 2012R2 servers. The backend DPM storage is 2 HP MSA arrays connected via FC to 3 old single port QLogic HBA cards. One MSA is connected to 2 cards and the other to 1.  I'd like to replace the old Qlogic cards with 2 new dual port QLogic cards.

    I'm unsure what steps I need to take when replacing the cards without losing my backups.  Advice please.
