Converting Evaluation version to Production - DPM 2012 SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently downloaded an evaluation version of SC DPM 2012 SP1 and installed it on my production DPM 2012 server, thinking that since I already had licensing it would just detect that.  However, it looks like it converted my system to the evaluation version.  Is there some way to convert it back to normal?  I don't see the licensing menus that I used to see in the 2012 version.  When I downloaded the evaluation, it did not say it was the beta version, so I believe it is the release version. 

    My database is now named MSDPM2012EVAL

  • Hi,

    Yes, you just run the upgrade again with the RTM SP1 download.

  • Hi,

    You need to upgrade with DPM RTM SP1.

    DPM RTM SP1 Setup will detect the older version and upgrade it.

  • Since I've already upgraded, is it possible to just run the upgrade again with the RTM download?  Or do I need to do some sort of conversion?  What happens when the evaluation period is up?  What does MS suggest then?
