DPM Replication RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I have two locations that each have DPM installed on it. Can I replicate each one of those to a third DPM. For example. DPM A backs up USA. DPM B backs up Canada. I want to replicate DPM A and DPM B to DPM C which sits in Mexico. Each location has its own server with one instance of DPM installed on it.

  • Yes, this is possible.

    DPM C will be the secondary DPM server for DPM A and DPM B.

    Hi Skspg,

    Look into DPM chaining for this scenario: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg410636.aspx

    This thread will give you a really good idea of how DPM chaining works: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dataprotectionmanager/thread/f5aa64dd-0400-4a9b-bb12-130a0ef44416/

    Here is another one that discusses chaining: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dpmstorage/thread/f548b8c5-4d96-436c-8b5b-4a338f642bed/

  • So I finally set this up going into a co-lo site. Using VPN to replicate 2 DPMs into a third DPM. We are replicating over 9TB of data and then will run 14 days of replication and synchronization. The issue we are running into is the fact that the Replica is always Inconsistent and we are getting a lot of Agent disconnects. I have throttling and even CPU Throttling and its still not working as efficiently as I would expect. We are on a 20mbps line but we are pinging back and forth at 2000ms. Something is not right. The server we are writing back to at the co-lo is a virtual. Any ideas on how to speed this up or make it more smooth?
