Adding disks to the storage pool

Management studio. You want a full backup and should end up with a .bak
file when done.
3. Uninstall the DPM application and choose retain data during the
uninstallation process.
4. Restart your DPM server.
5. Install DPM again and choose the SQL instance you want to install the DPM
database on. Remember if you are moving away from a remote SQL instance
to a local SQL instance, SQL server will be installed on the DPM server.
6. When the installation is finished, stop the DPM again by stopping the DPM
service ( Msdpm.exe ).

you backed up. You also need to synchronize the DPM database backup
after it is restored.

Run this command to restore the DPM database:
DpmSync –RestoreDb -DbLocYOURBACKUPPATH:\DPMDB.bak.
9.
Run this command to synchronize the DPM database:
DpmSync –RestoreDb –DbLoc location –INSTANCENAME SEVERNAME\
INSTANCENAME
