Upgrading a protected server to a new server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently working on upgrading a protected file server to new hardware. The current server has approximately 4 TB of data being backed up to a remote DPM 2012 server. I have already been running a weekly robocopy script from the current server to the new one on location so all of the data is the same on both servers. I also intend to give the new server the same name as the old one in the end (renaming the old one to something else of course). What is the best way (if possible at all) to migrate this so I will continue to have the previous recovery points. With the agent installed on the new server will DPM just recognize it as the same server and just continue on? Or will DPM still not recognize it as the same server and want to backup everything from scratch?
