Restore DPM DB RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    We've re-installed our DPM server with the 2012R2 version with the latest roll-ups. The previous version we used was DPM 2010. The "old" DPM DB was backed-up.

    But there is a change: For example the computer name has changed, this was done because the "old" server didn't use our naming convention. 

    Would it be a problem if we restore the the "old" database?

  • Hi,

    Yes it is very important to use the same server name for the OS build as the original DPMDB.bak that will restore will be looking for the original DPM sever name. This is a must as the DPM name is too heavily integrated with the SQL entries.  

    Also we cannot directly upgrade DPM 2010 to DPM2012 R2. As such please review the below
