  • Hi

    Backup your SCDPM DB before starting with the Upgrade.

    Run the Upgrade.

    If something went wrong, uninnstall SQL and SCDPM, install SQL and SCDPM, restore the SCDPM DB Backup from step 1

    run dpmsync.exe -sync

  • Hi the below outlines one detailed method regarding your ask.

    Check list needed items:

    1) Ensure you have DPM 2012 install media.

    2)  Ensure you have DPM 2012 SP1 install media.

    3) Important to have multiple backups of the DPMDB before and throughout the process.

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4058.list-of-build-numbers-for-system-center-data-protection-manager-dpm.aspx

    Part 1: Upgrading (Note the below process is for DPM server with DPMDB using local SQL instance not a remote SQL instance)

    Step1: Have a backup of the original DPMDB. This can be achieved several ways.

    • Having another DPM server backup the DPMDB

    • Run a manually back via an administrative command line with DpmBackup.exe -DB from the following location <DPM Install location>\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\DPM\DPM\bin        

     

    > Move the backed up DPMDB to an area not local to the DPM server for safe keeping.

    Note the DPMDB.bak will be placed in the following location <DPM Install location>\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\Database Backups\

     

    Step2: From DPM admin console select management tab then About DPM to confirm the version shown. If the version does not reflect DPM 2012 latest UR see below steps to update to 2012 UR3

    Step3: Update DPM 2012 to Update Rollup 3 for System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager (KB2751230)

    Step4: From Management tab agents note the agent updates column select Update Available to update the agents to UR 3 (4.0.1920.0)

    Step5:  Ensure before we create another backup of the DPMDB that we have moved the pervious backup to another location (creating this backup will overwrite the pervious backup created) Create a backup of DPM DB at DPM 2012 UR3 ensure we move the backed up DPMDB to an area not local to the DPM server for safe keeping once complete.

    Step6: Carry out launching setup for DPM 2012 SP1 media. Walk through the Data Protection Manager Setup to perform upgrade to DPM 2012 SP1

    Step7:  Once upgrade completes with success perform another backup of the DPMDB at DPM 2012 SP1 RTM.

    Step8: If the upgrade fails and you wish to troubleshoot the failure review the DPMSetup log location <DPM Install location>\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\DPM\DPMLogs\



    Part 2: Rolling back to pervious DPM install (DPM 2012) before you carry out below ensure you have a backup of the DPM DB created in Part 1 step 1 and step 5 in addition to the DPM 2012 install media.

    Step1: From DPM server navigate to Control Panel> Uninstall a program>Select Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1 Data Protection Manager

    Step2: Once the Data Protection Manager Setup appears ensure the radio button is selected to retain disk-based recovery points>select next

    Step3: Select uninstall.

    Step4: Once uninstall is complete reboot the DPM server.

    Step5: Post uninstall clean up from DPM server open SQL Server Management Studio (run as administrator)

    Step6:  Post uninstall clean up from SQL Server Management Studio expand Databases. Select the DPMDB .Right click. Navigate to tasks. Select Detach. Check Drop within Detach Database window. Select Ok to complete operation.

    Step7:  Post uninstall clean up from DPM server navigate to the following location <DPM Install location>\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\DPM\DPM\DPM\DPMDB\

    >Create a new folder and move the following files into this folder MSDPM2012$DPMDB.mdf and MSDPM2012$DPMDB_log.ldf

    Step8:  Carry out launching setup for DPM 2012 media. Walk through each step of the Data Protection Manager Setup to perform vanilla install of DPM 2012 RTM once the install completes with success carry out the below.

    Step9:  Reboot the DPM server

    Step10:   Open the DPM admin console select management tab then About DPM to confirm the version shown. The version shown should reflect build number 4.0.1908.0 which is RTM

    Step11:  As we wish to restore the most recent backup of DPMDB.bak in our case at DPM 2012 UR3 we need to bring the vanilla DPM install we just completed to that same version (UR3) level. This logic of versions needing to match always applies when looking to restore a pervious DPMDB.bak 

    Step12:  As the DPMDB.bak created in Part 1 step 5 was at DPM 2012 UR3 we will apply the DPM 2012 UR3 to the vanilla DPM install.

    Step13:   Once DPM 2012 UR3 install completes with success we will need to attach our original disk(s) back to DPM storage pool.

    Step14:   From DPM admin console navigate to management >>disks >> select add >> from the add disks to storage pool window select needed disks.

    Step15:   Now we can restore our DPMDB.bak created in Part 1 step 5 one method to restore the DPMDB.bak is as follows

    Step16:   Carryout restore of original DPMDB.bak (created in part 1 step 5) via SQL management studio

    >We will need run as administrator when opening SQL management studio

    >First we must detach the vanilla DPMDB. Then we can restore or needed DPMDB.bak

    Step17: Open DPM admin console.

    Step18:   Perform backup of DPMDB for safe keeping.
