Upgrading the Disaster Recovery Configuration

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

This topic provides guidance for upgrading your disaster recovery configuration to System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010.

CautionCaution
When upgrading from System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 SP1 to DPM 2010, if you are protecting system state and you have customized the location of the backup that is staged, this customization will be lost in the PSdataSourceConfig.xml file during the upgrade. The staging location will be set to the drive with the largest available disk space.

When a DPM server is being protected by another DPM server, use the following procedure to upgrade the DPM servers.

To upgrade a DPM that is being protected by another DPM server
