will I lose the backed up data if I remove the protected server from DPM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi we have a DPM 2012 with few protection groups.

    I have a server that is going to be decomissioned, If I remove this server from DPM Protection Group will it also remove all the data that were backed up from this server ?

    Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

  • Hi,

    When you stop protection for the datasource on that server, you will be given the option to retain or delete the protected data.  Select the option to retain it and it will be available for recoveries to alternate location.
