Moving DPM server to another server and leaving the original server online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We want to transfer the DPM application from one server to an other server with leaving the original server online. I know the option with DPMSync but I dont know if this works because the hostname, IP address and other server configuration will change. The disks are connected trough iSCSI so they are easibly to move.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hi,

    You only have these options:

    1)  Start over using a new server name and storage which means making new protection groups. This allows old dpm server to maintain recovery points for restores until new dpm server makes new ones.

    2) Migrate DPM to new server by using same name and same storage pool and restore dpmdb which will maintain all protection groups and recovery points.

    You cannot use different server name and use old dpmdb.
