DPM Protection for Files/Shares RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We want to configure protection for file share. However, this share is created on EMC Data domain and is accessible using \\server\share.

    I know that for file backups we need to installed agent on machines and then register that machines with DPM. However, since this is just a share, can we take backup of this using DPM ?

  • Hi,

    DPM requires an agent (except for VMware) to be able to backup, and you cannot install the DPM agent on an EMC Data Domain, so this won't be possible I'm afraid.

    What would work is to use a Windows Server to store the files/shares on the EMC Data Domain, and then back up the Windows Server.

    Best regards,
