Recover DPM 2012 R2 Remote SQL and DPM Volumes still intact RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Need some guidance please.

    We had the boot drive of our DPM server fail (Both drives in a RAID1). The SQL Instance is remote and still intact. The DPM Volumes are still intact.

    How do I go about restoring DPM2012R2 and connecting it to the existing instance and volumes?

  • Hello,

    You can restore your DPM Server with DPMSync. First you will need to create a backup of your DPM database, delete the database using SQL Server Management Studio and then reinstall DPM server. You will then have a new empty SQL database which you can then restore with DPMSync from your backup (.bak file). Check the Example 2: To restore the DPM database from a remote database from the link.

    Hope that helps
