Move DPM 2010 DB to a DPM 2012 R2 Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are currently using DPM2010 on physical hardware running Server 2008 SP2, we are no longer going to be using DPM as our primary backup solution.

    I need to migrate off this old hardware to a new physical server running Server 2012 R2 with DPM 2012R2 installed. The only functionality we require from this DPM server is to be able to restore data from tapes which we have archived for 7 years, we don't need any access to the recovery points that were stored on disk.

    Therefore I need a way to get the DB from the old server to this new server so we can use the DPM recovery console to identify any tapes we require to carry out restores.

    I can’t see any direct migration path to carry out this migration. I have created a new installation of DPM 2012 R2 on the new hardware. If I upgrade the old DPM 2010 server to DPM2012 R2 would I then be able to move the database across to the new DPM 2012 R2 server and be able to access the database showing all the recovery points on tapes?
