    How do i setup DPM18 so it protects Server1 if DPM17 is shut down?
    Do i have to uninstall the agent from Server1 and install a new agent from DPM18?

  • Hi,

    Once you setup Secondary Protection - you can simply right-click a data sources on the secondary and select the "switch disaster protection" option. 

    That action will contact the protected server and switch the agent to start communicating with the secondary DPM Server, when the primary is back up, you can switch back.  There will be an active alert on the primary to take control of the agent again.
