Determining initial size replica + recovery point volumes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, quick question.

    I'm taking a new DPM2010 server in use and I'm protecting only folders and files on the protected server.

    On the DPM server I have 50TB availabale.

    My question: there is not yet any data on the protected server. Starting tomorrow people will be puting data there. I know eventually the protected server will have +/- 25TB on there.

    But I already want to create the protection group now (while there's no data on the protected volume yet). So do I calculate the volumes according to the 25TB the size will eventually become?

    So 25TBx3/2 = 37.5 for the replica volume

    25TBx14(retention) x2/100 = 7TB for the recovery point volume

    So should I put in these values while creating the protection group?

    Thanks in advance,
