Possible to install DPM agent on DPM server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    That may sound like a stupid question but I can't really find the answer...

    Is it possible to deploy the DPM agent on the DPM server?

    The reason why I'm asking is that because I need to backup databases on one single SQL server in an isolated environment to Azure using Azure Backup, so I'd like to avoid deploying a new server for Azure Backup if I can.

    Thanks!

  • Hi CyrAz,

    It is a valid question, actually the DPM agent is already installed "physically", it's basically integrated when you install a DPM server, it is not possible to install the DPM agent manually.

    If you have the database (SQL server) installed on the DPM server itself, you should see it when creating/modifying a protection group by expanding the DPM server.


    Best regards,

  • OK so basically it behaves like SCOM, where a MS already includes the "agent"

    Perfect, thanks Leon !
