Move large amount of data between different sites RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the most efficient way to copy large amount of data (2-3 TB) from one DPM server storage to a secondary site? I guess it's not that easy any longer to access the replica path in DPM 2012? I need to do this initially as there is a slow connection (10 Mbps) between the sites. The DPM versions are 2012 R2 on both sites.

  • Hi,

    With such a slow link, you would be best to copy the data to removable disk(s) and ship them to remote site.  You can gain access to replica using psexec.exe.


    1)      Download psexec.exe from www.sysinternals.com
    2)      Run PSEXEC -s cmd.exe   (this will switch window to system context) 
    3)      Afterwards - type WHOAMI it should return:

                      nt authority\system

    4)  Now CD to the replica volume under Program Files\Microsoft Install path\DPM\Volumes\replica\...
    5) Copy from removable disk to replica.
