Changing Resource Groups on Clustered File Servers

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

A cluster node can have any number of resource groups. Moving a DPM protected data source to a resource group, between resource groups, or out of a resource group can cause protection job failures. To successfully make any of those changes to resource group membership, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop existing protection of the data source. The data source could belong to a protection group as a single data source on a protected server or as a data source as a member of a resource group.

  2. Begin protection of the data source according to its new status, either as a single data source on a protected server or as a data source as a member of a resource group. This will allocate a new replica for the data source.

Changing the name of a resource group will affect the protection of all data sources in the resource group. To change the name of a resource group, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop protection of the resource group.

  2. Change the name of the resource group.

  3. Begin protection of the resource group under its new name.
