Trying to backup DPM using a second DPM Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have 2 DPM 2010 servers (3.0.7707 on 2008R2 Ent Sp1 same domain) in two different sites with a dedicated cable (10+ mbs) vpn tunnel connecting these two servers. I've been attempting to replicate/backup the DPM1 with DPM2. I have added installed the DPM agent from DPM2 to DPM1 and added it to a protection group. However, I can only add DPM1's resources (SQL databases, c: vol, shares, system state, etc). I cannot see any of the servers that DPM is protecting. I have run a test using the (Check-ProductionServer.ps1) script which does not return any errors.

  • Hey there. I have a similar environment. 2 secondary servers in different data centres, protecting three different primaries.

    Can you check if you have windows Server Backup features turned on for both the machines. Specifically DPM1.

  • I see that it's loaded on DPM1 but not DPM2.
