Migrate DPM 2010 to DPM 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I need to migrate DPM 2010 using a local SQL 2008 express edition running on SRV2008 SP2 to DPM 2012 R2 running on Windows Server 2012 R2. I originally thought I could just install DPM2010 on Server 2012 R2 but that doesn't seem to be supported.

    I cant seem to find a documented process for this. I was hoping it would just be a case of installing DPM 2012 R2 on the new server and then moving across the database from DPM2010 but this article seems to suggest there is no easy way to migrate DPM https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/4bd7a58f-0e63-43ff-86e6-82e26e28758b/migration-dpm-2010-to-dpm-2012-and-new-hardware?forum=dataprotectionmanager.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to do this?

    The frustrating thing is this new DPM2012 R2 server is only being used to give us the option to restore data from our tape archive. It will no longer be backing up any data as we have a new system in place for this.

    Regards

    Lee
