Cyclic protection for DPM servers that are Hyper-V RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have (2) DPM 2012 R2 servers that are both Hyper-V. These run in 2 different locations and I want to have them backup each other for disaster recovery. When I look at the cyclic option I noticed I would still have to rebuild the DPM server and recover the DB and other data in the event of a disaster. My question is, since they are both Hyper-V can I just do a normal Hyper-V backup (although it says Offline Mode) of these DPM servers? The reason I want to do it this way is because then I can quickly restore the VM to any of my Host servers in an outage. Please let me know if this is possible or even supported. I couldn't find any documention on this scenario.
