Restoring data from a different DPM server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to restore DPM data on a tape from one DPM 2007 SP1 server in the same domain onto another DPM server 2007 SP1?

    Is it possible to restore DPM data on a tape from one DPM 2007 SP1 server in the same domain onto another DPM server 2010?

    I tried cataloging a tape from a DPM 2007 SP1 box on a server on another domain and it appears as if the tape can NOT be read...

  • Reading tapes from different dpm servers regardless of domain or dpm version is fully supported.  The only thing that might get you in trouble is encrypted tapes, you will need to export the certificate from the source dpm server and import the cert into destination dpm server before you can read them.  If the tape libraries are of different manufacturers, that may be a potential problem. 

     

    What is the error you encounter while importing and cataloging the tapes on the destination dpm server ?
