  • General discussion

  • Hello!

    I done test update on test DPM server. (Server 2012 R2 + DPM 2012 R2 UR10)

    1) Backup database

    2) Install SQL 2016 RTM

    3) Install SQL 2016 SP2

    4) Install DPM 2016 RTM

    5) Install DPM 2016 UR7

    6) Update DPM Agents.

    All works perfectly!

    Do i need update Server 2012 R2 to Server 2016?

  • Hello,

    If you want the new features like Modern Backup Storage (MBS) you will need to upgrade to Windows Server 2016, see the new DPM 2016 features over here:
    What's new in System Center Data Protection Manager

    However it is not a requirement to upgrade the operating system, but it is of course recommended, so the choice is entirely up to you.

    PS: Please change the threat to a Question.

    Best regards,
    Leon
