Clusters and DPM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have now 3 Server 2012 clusters accross 2 sites. (Live,DR & Test). I have also DPM on Both Sites linked. Now that I can live migrate between Clusters, how does DPM keep track where my Virtual Servers are.

    When I configure a Virtual Server to be backed up in DPM, I select it from a Cluster, and back it up, when I move it to another cluster, I dont see the link to the data, but an oportunity to back it up again!

    How do I link the data back to the moved server?

    I am using DPM 2012 (not sp1 yet)

  • You'll need DPM 2012 SP1 in order to do this. I'm assuming you're managing with VMM 2012 SP1.

    If so, see the following technet article to install/configure the VMM helper. This will help DPM understand where the VM is moving it and change the protection group accordingly.
