  • Hi,

    The disks in the DPM storage pool are Dynamic disks, so you just need to import them after the fresh install. After restoring the DPMDB, DPM will recognize the disks in the storage pool and continue to use them like before the upgrade.

  • Hi,

    The tape drive will most likely be see as a new device to DPM and worst case you need to modify the PG's to point to the new tape drive.  Tapes should still be recognized by the new install and should be able to be used for restores.
