Renaming an Exchange Server

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager

System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) uses the computer name as a unique identifier for replicas, recovery points, DPM database entries, reporting database entries, and so on.

You cannot do the following:

  • Change the name of a protected computer and continue protection without disruption.

  • Change the name of a protected computer and associate the existing replicas and recovery points with the new computer name.

We recommend that you do not change the name of a protected computer. If you must change the name of a protected computer, you must complete two tasks:

  • Remove the data sources on the computer from protection (the old computer name).

  • Protect the data source on the computer (the new computer name).
