DECOM DPM Server and Migrate Tape/Azure Data to Existing Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just like the title says, I have 2 DPM servers with local SQL DBs.  One has no active protection groups anymore and I want to migrate all of the long term backed up items to another server that has active protection groups.  Is there a way to migrate all of the historic tapes and Azure backups and keep the data for the existing retention period, or is it just easier to keep the server running until all recovery points have expired?

  • Hi, did you ever find a good solution for this problem?

  • I never did. Those servers are kept alive just for long term recovery. I hate to just import the tapes to another server, but that may be the only option. (Given the lack of documentation for this scenario)
