Can DPM 2016 agent co-exist with DPM 2012 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all, 

    I am new to DPM and going through a deployment project. Current production servers; which are protected via DPM 2012, needs to now move to a newer DPM 2016 backup solution. The protected production servers have DPM 2012 agent installed. 

    The DR site will be used to create a new DPM 2016 server. The protected servers will require newer DPM 2016 agent installed. The objective is, not to loose protection of production servers; via DPM 2012; until after new agent from DPM 2016 is installed, backups to new DPM 2016 server tested. 

    Is it possible? or I would need to totally disable/uninstall DPM 2012 agents, BEFORE I install DPM 2016 agents on the production servers. 

    Please guide. Any helpful links would be appreciated.
