DPM to DPM backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    I would like to do the following:

    Main DPM backup server locally which does all backup.
    Second DPM backup server that syncronizes only the changes during the night from the main DPM server. (6 mbit line, in use during the day)

    Can this be done , or is this impossible?

  • Hey,

    This is perfectly possible.  What you are going to create is a DPM to DPM solution, where your primary DPM is in your main office doing all the local backups according to your retention settings.  You are going to add a second DPM server, in another location that will protect the "main" server.  Then you can specify another retention range making sure that it only protects the protected data from main at night, or at the hour that you specify.

    Hope it helps,

    If not clear, please ask
