sharepoint protection using MS DPM RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi all,

    I have some basic questions about protecting our intranet site running SharePoint services in VM on hyper-V cluster host.

    In order to protect VM internal applications, do I need to install agent on hyper-V host also or only in hyper-V VM.

    and If I need to protect entire VM then I need to install agent on hyper-V host right. or in this case also I need to install agent on hyper-V VM?

    I have All DPM documentation but there is some confusion.

  • Hi,

    when you like to protect applications within the VM install the Agent within the VM on the OS - via Hyper-V Host backups the applications won't be detected.

    For the entire VM you Need to install the Agent on the Hyper-V host.

    To summ it up: Install both agents so can protect everything you Need.
