DPM 2012 and SQL 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Any way to get DPM 2012 to use a remote SQL 2012 ("Denali") instance for it's DB?  Also, any idea when DPM 2012 will support backing up SQL 2012?  It would be nice, since this is all in a lab environment.

  • First, I will confirm that DPM 2012 will only support SQL 2008 R2 for the backend.

    As for protection, DPM 2012 will protect SQL 2012 out of the box.  The only exception is that the new SQL replication will not be supported at release.  That feature will be added at a later time.

  • Hi,

    I believe DPM 2012 will only support SQL 2008 R2 for use as backend SQL instance. I'll need to check on the protection part of this quesiton.

  • Thanks, I understand.  My only request is that the System Center applications should be able to share a remote SQL instance.  Right now, I believe the requirements for SCCM are different than SCDPM.

  • I can understand that request.  I don't know about SCCM, but DPM will need the instance it uses to be dedicated to DPM.  I will make sure that your concerns are echo'ed to the development team though so they can analyze it accordingly.

  • Just to update this thread regarding since the release of DPM 2012 w/ SP1:

    • DPM 2012 (w/o SP1) CANNOT use SQL 2012 as the remote backend SQL instance.
    • DPM 2012 (w/SP1) CAN use SQL 2012 as the remote backend SQL instance.

    DPM can be installed to a named SQL instance (the default installation will create a named instance).  The SSRS portion would use the named instance for DPM.

    Thanks again to Chris Butcher.
