Move DPM 2012 R2 Protected Resources to new Primary server RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have old DPM 2012 R2 server (DPM1) with tape-drive at co-location, since we upgraded our infrastucture and got new DPM 2012 R2 server (DPM2). We wanted add DPM2 act as primary DPM-server and DPM1 as secondary. Now we cannot backup Cluster Resources to DPM2 and drive them to tape on DPM1.


    Is there any scripts available to clean DPM database to allow Cluster Resources to be backed up normally by DPM2 and then covered up by DPM1 + tapedrive? for agent enabled PS there is powershell Remove-ProductionServer.ps1. But it seems that it doesnt work with Cluster Resources.

  • Did you setup the DPM2 as a secondary to the DPM 1 server and run switch protection so that DPM2 can become the primary for the cluster resources? Or you could remove the cluster protection install the agent from the DPM2 server to the cluster servers. Not ideal but that would accomplish moving this.
