gettin a vm to show up in dpm 2012 after moving host RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I migrated a virtual machine to a new host a couple of days ago, and am trying to modify my protection group so that the vm will be backed up, its giving an error now of course since its still looking for the vm on the old server, however when i go to modify the protection group and go to the new server where the vm has been moved to it doesnt show up in order to select it.  I assume i have to refresh it somehow but unsure how to do this, could someone help me out thanks.

  • I believe DPM Agent was installed on the VM and DPM server was attached to the VM. In such a scenario movement of VM to a new host should not require any changes to the protection group.

    Few things that you could verify -

    New host should be routable on the network i.e. ensure that new host can ping DPM server and DPM server can ping the moved VM

    Let me know if I am missing something
