DPM2012 upgrade to DPM2012R2, best route to take? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    We are currently backing up our 8 node Hyper-V clusters with DPM 2012 SP1 with local SQL DB, running on ws2008r2 sp1.My goal now is to upgrade DPM to 2012R2 and preferebly also OS to ws2012r2, as well as using a remote SQL server. The remote SQL is already up and running with SQL 2012 SP1 running on ws2012R2.It holds the SCOM2012R2 and VMM2012R2 DBs already, and I want to migrate the current DPM DB over to that SQL server and hook it up with the current DPM disk on a new DPM2012R2/WS2012 server.

    What are the steps involved to accomplish that?

    1.Backup the DPM DB and restore it on the remote SQL server.

    2. Install ws2012r2/DPM2012R2 on the server.

    3.Hook up the DPM disk to the server

    4.Upgrade all Agents..

    Am I on the right track??

    Thx /Tony
