New Initial backup of a DeDup volume - problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    unfortunately a collegue of mine enabled DeDup on a volume of a Win 2012 Protected Server.

    DPM Server is running DPM 2012SP1 UR1. DeDup role is not installed.
    Now we get inconsistency error Messages...

    We have installed a new DPM 2012R2, UR2, running on Windows Server 2012R2, DeDup role is activated on the Server.
    My solution would be:

    1. Remove Protection on "old" DPM  2012 Sp1 Server for the affected PS
    2. "setdpmserver.exe" on PS to new DPM 2012R2
    3. Attach PS to DPM2012R2
    4. Update DPM Agent on affected PS from the DPM2012R2 console to uptodate R2 Agent
    (is there a reboot required?)

    5. Configure PG for whole volume (dedup enabled) and start replica creation

    You think this works?

    Is there anything I have to take of when starting the backup of a dedup volume?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    It sounds like you just need to enable the dedup role in the DPM 2012 SP1 server.
