Move Protection Group from One DPM server to another DPM server

Hi Mike,
Can we move Protection Group from one DPM 2012 SP1 to another DPM 2012 R2 version? If yes then what is the steps to perform that. Also i am running DPM servers with co-located and non-colocated configuration. What would be best as per best practice? Because
my 95% backup are SQL backups.

Hi,
There are no provisions in DPM to move protection groups or protected data sources to a new DPM server and maintain the recovery points.  The best you can do is to stop protection on DPM1 and retain the replica, then run the setdpmserver.exe on the
protected server and point it the DPM2 server. On DPM2, run the attach-productionserver.ps1 script to establish agent communications, then make new protection groups and re-protect the same data sources.  After the retention goals are met, delete
the replica from under inactive protection group on DPM1.

  • Moving the Individual Protection group from one SAN Volume to another SAN Volume

    Hi Professionals
    Dudes !!! There is no much information about migratedatasourcedatafromdpm.ps1
    script on the technet. My question is that I need to move Individual Protection group in an orderly manner from one SAN Storage to Another. I have more than 30 protection groups. I want to move individually 2 to 3 protection groups at one time from
    Old SAN Storage to New SAN storage. Is it possible that I mention  protection group individually and move each protection group bit-by-bit to the new SAN Storage. 

    Hi,
    you can use this GUI Option, to move a whole Disk.
    in the next Version, hopefully published this Week, you can select a whole Protectiongroup to move

    Can I move/copy songs from one itunes account to another itunes account on the same iMac?

    You move the song files to /Users/Shared/ and then into iTunes from the other Mac OS X user account.
    If you want to change the iTunes Store account associated with them, you need to redownload them from that account.

  • Hi I have 2 apple id's one which has pulled through everything except my calendars and one which has pulled through just my calendars. How do I move my calendars from one apple id to another?

    Hi I have 2 apple id's one which has pulled through everything into icloud except my calendars and one which has pulled through just my calendars. How do I move my calendars from one apple id to another so that I can see everything in icloud with one apple id?

    Having read some other posts I think I have answered my question. If I was somehow able to terminate my old (unwanted) account and Apple ID I would no longer be able to access the material I bought with that ID-  so I'm stuck. I have to learn how to manage that situation.
    This is unfortunate for Apple consumers. Life is complicated for families these days and this "rule" although it is in place to prevent cheating and fraud makes things unnnecessarily difficult for me and my family as in my niaevity (sic) with the online world I bumbled into this situation. Not everyone is out to rip off Apple - one of the worlds richest corporations- or the entertainers who market their work through iTunes.I would just like to be able to enjoy the entertainment I pay for where and when I like to on whichever computer is available to me. And I'm not terribly computer literate.   
    It would have been nice to have had the opportunity to speak just once to a real person in the employ of Apple to explain my situation to them.

  • Moving Protection Groups (With replica/recovery volumes) to Another DPM.

    I am checking and find there's a way to create manual replica and copy paste old replica data on new dpm server and then Sync it. Is there any way to copy recovery point volume as well to another DPM server?
    I have stand up second DPM server and want to move some protection groups from DPM1 to DPM2 as DPM1 is overloaded. What I want to move some protection groups (Along with replica and recovery point volume) to DPM2 so that I can restore 30 days recovery points
    as well from DPM2.
    Please advice me, is it possible or not.

    Hi,
    That is not possible.  Recovery points are VSS snapshots of the replica volume, and cannot be copied.  You can stop protection on DPM1 and retain the replica for recoveries.  On DPM2 - re-protect the data from scratch.

  • How do i move a file from one external drive to another

    This is my first Mac computer and I have no idea how to move/copy a file from one external hard drive to another? It won't let me drag and drop from one Finder window to another and there is no copy/paste option on the left mouse click.

    That is because it is on the Right Click, and the menu.

  • Looking for a way to move entire pages from one photo book into another photo book.

    I haven't found out how to move pages from one photo book into another. Surely this is possible?
    Also on the subject of photo books: it seems that it is not possible to enlarge the size of a text box. Or has anyone found a way to accomodate more than 1 line of text on a photo book page?

    You can look through some of the different Layouts available.
    Select your page.
    Click the "Layout" icon on the lower right hand of the application window.
    Above it will appear a "BACKGROUND" section and a "LAYOUT" section.
    Immediately below the "LAYOUT" is a drop down menu which will show you all the different options.

  • How to Move Music Library from one external HD to another

    I had about 60GB of music on an external hard drive, nicely organized and "linked to" from iTunes (just upgraded to version 5). I recently purchased a larger external hard drive and basically copied the contents of my older external drive to the new one, preserving all folder structures from the root of the drives down (but the name of the drive itself is different.) I was hoping I could just do a search/replace of the "iTunes Music Library.xml" file in my Music/iTunes folder, to replace the name of the old drive (volume) with the new one. I did, and iTunes launches fine, preserving my playlists, song ratings, etc... but whenever I try to play any of the songs, it says it can't find it (I can manually point iTunes to it, but I don't want to do that for 15,000 songs...) Strange thing, though, is that if I quit out of iTunes and re-open the Library XML file, all the paths have been reset to their original location!! What am I missing? Thanks in advance,
    Jesse

    I just want to add that the iTunes folder (with the library xml file and such) is on my local hard drive, in the typical Music/iTunes location. I don't want to simply re-import the songs 'cuz I'd lose playlist contents and ratings, and I don't want to "consolidate" the library because I want to keep my music folders and filenames as I currently have them. Basically, I just want iTunes to realize the songs have simply changed location from one external drive to another... thanks again.

  • How to move SCCM service from one logical drive to another logical drive on site database server?

    Hi All,
    We are ussing SCCM 2012 RTM in our environment. We have one central site on
    Server1 and one primary site on server2. SCCM database of both sites are on remote servers
    we have one cluster (Name: Cluster1) in that we have four running SQL servers (ServerdDB1,  ServerDB2,
    ServerDB3, and ServerDB4 ). There is one sql instance named
    Application on all four sql servers. Central site database
    CM_CAS hosted Application instance on ServerDB3.
    ServerDB2 is the failover of ServerDB3
    Now I have few queries on which I need your assistance.
    1. The SMS_SITE_SQL_BACKUP_SERVER1 service is running on all sql servers in the cluster. The SMS_SITE_SQL_BACKUP_SERVER1 service on ServerDB4 is running on L drive. I want to move this service from L drive to system drive C permanently.
    How can I do this?
    2. I tried to move SMS_site_sql_Backup_server1 service from L drive to C drive by following changes
    Change the service path in registry on ServerDB4
    Reset the SCCM central site without any modification.
    The above service moved to C drive time beaing but I do'nt know why this service came again in L drive. and running from L drive on same server. Do I need to unistall SCCM and reinstall again?
    3. Why did SCCM site database install on all sql servers ? As I ServerDB2 is the failover of ServerDB3 so it should be only ServerDB2 and ServerDB3.
    4. Why SMS_SITE_SQL_BACKUP_SERVER1 service is running on all SQL server in cluster?
    Your assistance on above qureies will be very appreciated..
    Thanks
    Rinku

    Hi,
    The server will be installed on the each of the clustered nodes. I think you may use the following to do the change.
    1. Stop the SMS_Site_SQLBackup_%SERVERNAME% on the node
    2. Remove the following Registry Keys on the node:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\SMS\Components
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\SMS_SITE_SQLBACKUP_%SERVERNAME%
    3. On the site server, browse to the fllowing registry key:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SMS\Components\SMS_SITE_Component_Manager\Multisite Component Servers\%SERVERNAME%
    4. Change the install directory to the appropriate drive
    5. Restart the SiteComp service on the Site server
    Note: Please do a backup before doing this change, which is very important for unexpected failure.

  • How do I move iTunes library from one user account to another?

    I bought apps for a (now obsolete) Apple ID, however, I then created a new Apple ID, which I now use.  How do I delete the old Apple ID and is it possible to move my iTunes library and other files and folders from my current user account to a newly created user account?  Will this allow me to use only the new Apple ID instead of having to sign in/out bewteen 2 IDs which is frustrating.

    How would I transfer iTunes from one external hard drive to another external hard drive with iTunes 8 since I do not see the consolidate option? During previous attempts with version 7 I received the following error: The song __ could not be used because the original file could not be found.

  • Move database files from one ASM diskgroup to another

    We are working on 11.2.0.3 RAC environment. We have an activity in which we have to move ASM database files from one diskgroup to another. We have the sufficient downtime for the activity. On checking MOS it says copying datafiles from "rman copy" command is the preferred method.But with 11g R2 we can use cp command in ASMCMD.
    So which is the preferred method to copy asm database files and why:
    RMAN Copy command or ASMCMD cp command

    Hi,
    I normally prefer to go with RMAN than the ASMCMD cp command. Suppose the datafiles are OMF and you use RMAN to copy:
    1. offline the datafile
    2. RMAN>copy datafile <offline-datafile-on-old-DG> to +NEW-DG;
    3. At database level, rename the old datafile to the new name reported from the above command
    4. Switch the new datafile to copy
    5. Recover the new datafileHere, RMAN assigns automatically a unique name for the new datafile (OMF) and you only have to specify the new diskgroup name while using the COPY command which makes things easier. But say if you are using ASMCMD, then you cannot just specify the new diskgroup name for the CP command, which means that a unique name cannot be obtained automatically.
    The below command does not work out.
    asmcmd>cp OLD_DG/datafile/abc.123 NEW_DGYou need to specify the destination name as well something like below:
    asmcmd>cp OLD_DG/datafile/abc.123 NEW_DG/abc.dbfHere you are getting a normal file and not OMF, though ASM internally creates a link for the file "+NEW_DG/abc.dbf" pointing to an OMF. ASMCMD makes you a bit more confusive.

    No, you can't do it, and Verizon Tech Support *generally* won't do it without a very good reason.
