Replacing Server running DPM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am running DPM on a Server 2008 R2 machine with separate iSCSI storage for backups.

    This Server is being decommissioned and I need to move DPM and the Database.

    I have deployed a new Server 2012 R2 / System Center R2 available (DPM not yet installed)

    What is the best way of moving DPM, so that the Database (protection groups etc.) and Storage all remain the same and continue as normal from the new Server?

  • Ok, I'm thinking I do this:

    1. Back up the DPM Database on existing Server 2008 R2 using SQL 2008

    2. Restore DPM Database to new Server 2012 R2 running SQL 2012

    3. Install DPM R2 and choose 'use existing database' when installing

    Will this work?
