I'm having this strange issue with bandwidth throttling in DPM 2010.
We have two DPM servers (primary/secondary type configuration). The secondary server (located in a remote site across a WAN) is backing up the data off the primary server (standard setup).
I've setup the bandwidth throttling on the secondary server for the agent of the primary as following:
Work hours: 10Mbps
Non-Work hours: 15Mbps
When I start a backup, and it is during work hours, the restriction works well, and I see about 10Mbps being used on my WAN link.
However, as soon as the time changes to "Non-Work Hours", my link gets fully used, so the 15Mbps throttle is not working (it's a 20Mbps WAN link).
I've tried to bring the limit for both settings right down to 1Mbps, but the same result appears (it works for "work hours", but not for "Non-Work Hours").
Is this a bug in DPM 2010? or am i doing something wrong?
PS: QoS Packet scheduler is installed on both windows servers (2008 R2 /w SP1)

I have come across this as well and normally the fix is to install QOS Packet scheduler in which case you have installed.
Are you up to date with updates and hotfixes for DPM?

We have since upgraded the server to DPM 2012 and it now works fine.

Glad it is working now.
