    i have 2 dpm 2007 servers one in each major office and the northern one is primary the southern one is secondary i have them configured so i do secondary protection of the northern servers in the south everything was fine on protecting the northern file server untill i upgraded that server to server 2008R2 SP1 standard from server 2003R2 SP2

    before i did the upgrade i removed the secondary protection grop in the south leaving the inactive data on the southern server i then stopped protection of the file server in the northern server and uninstalled the agent

    performed the os change <formated the file server and reloaded with 2008R2 sp1> , installed dpm agent and restored its content
