DPM 2016 server migration - dpmbackup missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • In DPM 2012R2 we had dpmbackup.exe to backup the DPM SQL database. This tool is nowhere to be found in DPM2016. This tool was part of the official documentation on how to "Move the DPM server to a different computer":

    I am testing a migration scenario in my lab in preperation for a real migration in a month or two.

    Source: DPM 2016 (upgraded from 2012R2), Windows Server 2012R2, database on SQL cluster

    Target: DPM 2016 on Windows Server 2016 (new installation, same name and IP), database on local SQL server

    Without dpmbackup.exe i am a bit lost on what the proper procedure for creating the backup is. How can i produce a backup of the current DPM database that dpmsync –restoredb will accept?
