Upgrading to DPM 2010

Updated: July 2, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 supports an upgrade from DPM 2007 SP1 installed on a Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2008 64-bit operating system. If DPM 2007 SP1 is installed on a Windows Server 2003 64-bit operating system, you must upgrade to Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2008 before upgrading to DPM 2010. For information about upgrading the operating system for a DPM 2007 SP1 server to Windows Server 2008 see, Upgrading a DPM Server to Windows Server 2008 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=147369).

Before you begin the upgrade of DPM, note the following requirements and recommendations:

  • Install the latest hotfixes for DPM 2007 SP1. For the latest updates and hotfixes for DPM, see Downloads for System Center Data Protection Manager (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=188865).

  • Ensure that DPM 2007 SP1 is installed on a Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2008 64-bit operating system.

  • Ensure that the hard disk on which DPM 2007 SP1 is installed has at least 3 gigabytes (GB) of free disk space.

  • We strongly recommend that you back up the DPMDB database and save the backup file in a secure location.

  • If you are using a remote instance of SQL Server, we recommend install a new instance of SQL Server 2008 SP1, Standard or Enterprise Edition. For step-by-step instructions for installing a remote instance of SQL Server, see Installing a Remote Instance of SQL Server 2008.

Before you begin the upgrade of DPM, note the following additional considerations:
