DPM 2012 secondary server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone

    Just confirming that a secondary DPM server connects to the individual agents which the primary protects? Rather than getting the replica information straight from the primary?

    When I went to protect the primary server with a secondary, the secondary complained that it didn't have access to the clients which are protected by the primary.

    Sound correct?

  • Hi,

    No. Please read this statement from this link: (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb795680.aspx) as it breaks it down.

    "The secondary DPM server protects the database of the primary DPM server, and also protects the replicas of volumes C and D of the file server."

    So the Secondary DPM server is protecting the Primary DPM servers database and replicas. It communicates with the Primary DPM server not directly with Protected Servers of that Primary DPM server. Another indicator is that you have to switch protection (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb808972.aspx) if you want the secondary DPM server to protect the Primary DPM servers Protected Servers directly.
