  • Hi

    Depending how you really meen.

    1. If you should replace an old hardware for your DPM server you could restore the DPM database on the new hw with DPM installed. Just remember to move all your DPM disk in the disk pool.
    2. If you have another primary dpm server and you want to move the protectiongroup (with memebers) to it the awnser is no
    3. If you meen having a secondary DPM server backing uo the primary DPM servers replicas, the awnser is yes

    I hope you did get some clarification


    Best Regards

  • Thanks Robert

    I was trying option 2, moving protected data from Primary DPM1 to Primary DPM2.
