Restoring workstation other location without agent installed. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I do realized using DPM there lots of limitation.

    How do I restore workstation backup to other location which located on server without installing the DPM agent?
    Because the server it self was protected with other DPM for server.

  • Hi,

    All DPM recoveries require an agent to be installed on the server you wish to recover to.  If the workstation is currently being backed by DPM1 but you want to restore data from DPM2, you can run the setdpmserver -dpmservername DPM2 on the workstation, then on DPM2 attach the workstation so the agent says OK. You can then restore data to it from DPM2.  Once restored, you can switch the agent back to DPM1 using setdpmserver and disable or remove the agent on DPM2.  This assumes the DPM versions are the same for DPM1 and DPM2.
