What exactly does SetSharedDpmDatabase parameter [-DoNotMoveData] mean? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    I am about to configure tape library sharing among four DPM 2012 SP1 servers.

    One server is dedicated as the library server. Remaining three should be set up as library clients.

    In the library sharing article it is stated that I need to run this command on the library client servers.

    SetSharedDpmDatabase -DatabaseName <SqlServer\Instance\DatabaseName> [-DoNotMoveData]

    Could someone please clarify what exactly this command does, and perhaps more specifically explain the [-DoNotMoveData] parameter.

    Also, does this parameter influence the option to stop sharing the library?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated, thx.

  • Hi,

    That is an optional switch only used after upgrading from EVAL to RTM or moving the library control servers SQL DB to another SQL Server.  You should not use it when setting up library sharing initially.
