SC DPM 2012 R2 moving to a new server with same storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to move the DPM to a new server with a new name but with the same storage (keeping the recovery point

    I followed the guide "Move DPM to a new server with different settings" attached the storage, and got the result that I see no recovery points and the gents monitor on the new server is saying: "The protection agent operation failed because DPM detected an unknown DPM protection agent on server.domain"

    Same OS same DPM version, what am I missing?

  • Hi,

    If you intend on using the same storage pool and maintain recovery points, you needed to follow the "Move DPM to a new server with the same settings" - you cannot change the name of the DPM server if you want to use old storage pool and DPMDB to retain recovery points.
