"merge" DPM database DPM 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, 

    i know that an instance of DPM can be shared with different DPM server.

    Actually i have 2 DPM server that use their own instance. Is there a way to "merge" this 2 instance in another third instance on a new server with the minor impact on data ?

  • Hi,

    Please explain in more detail, what do you mean with shared DPM instance? Are you talking about SQL instance or just multiple DPM Servers?

  • I mean both.

    I have two DPM server and one Sql Server 2012 with 2 DPM instances installed.

    in brief:

    server DPM1------->instanceDPM1

    server DPM2------->instanceDPM2

    I'm asking if it's possible to achieve this configuration:

    server DPM1------> instanceDPMNEW

    server DPM2------> instanceDPMNEW

    It's possible ?

    Best Regards
