Trouble re-enabling inactive data in DPM 2012 to continue the backup chain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    A need a quick help, so I would appreciate anyone answering as quickly as possible. My foretaste thanks!

    I'm working with DPM 2012 and recently 5 virtual machines in hypervisor contoso got migrated to hypervisor contoso02. What I was looking to do was to deactivate protection on hypervisor contoso and then create a new protection on hypervisor contoso02 keeping my current available backups from the virtual machines inactive protection.

    The problem is that when I create a new protection, DPM allocates new space and disregards the virtual machines data in the inactive replica leaving me with no previous backups. Isn't this supported?

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Hi evo,

    I am not really sure and have neveer tried it myself.

    But I have seen a PS command that was called "change replica path" or something like that - unfortunately I do not remember the exact command and i am not sure if it is an "official" command...
