  • Is it possible to virtualise a production DPM 2012 Server?

    I want to p2v a physical DPM Server and use it as a clone for testing. I just want the Server on its own, not the Disk-pool. SCVMM lets me attempt it, but fails saying it could not create a shadow copy. There is plenty of space on the C: Drive of the DPM Server, so I am thinking it may be to do with DPM "owning" all the shadow copy space? or maybe a problem with my DPM, as I get some fails when DPM tries to back up it's own Database "not enough space for churn"?

    If I can confirm DPM can be p2v'd that would be a good start
