Maintain DPM protection of clustered file service during migration to new cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • So this seems to be something that I would expect to see some documentation on but there is nothing that I can find.

    We have a File Service on a server 2008R2 cluster (ClusterA) whose hardware is now pretty much end of life. We have a nice new set of hardware running server 2012 (ClusterB) and we are in the process of migrating the various Services (Roles in 2012) over to the new cluster.

    Most of the service have migrated with the migration wizard without incident but I am running into something of a problem with one of the clustered file services that is protected by DPM.
    There does not appear to be a way for me to tell DPM that ServiceA is now on ClusterB. Obviously I could just drop and re-add it but I really do not want to lose the current history we have in the protection group and at the moment do not have the capacity for me to run 2 copies until the expires.

    Has anyone run into this or found a solution?
