After upgrading do the following

  • Upgrade the DPM protection agent on protected computers and server. Note that this might require a restart of the protected computer.

  • After upgrading the server and protection agent all of your data sources will be marked as inconsistent. Upgrade the respective protection agents, and then perform a consistency check.

  • Reconfigure tape library sharing.

Upgrade the agent on protected servers

  1. On the protected computer or server, in the SCDPM folder of the setup DVD, open the Agents folder, and then copy DPMAgentInstaller_x64.exe and DPMAgentInstaller_x86.exe to a network share.
