SCDMPM 2012 and SCDPM 2016 & NAS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an existing DMP 2012 and have a 18TB NAS presented to it. This DPM is not able to support windows server 2016.

    Hence i am planning to implement DPM 2016.

    My question is can DPM 2012 and DPM 2016 both share the same NAS drive that i have.

  • Hi,

    None of them can use a NAS Drive as a backup target.

    So you cannot have a "NAS" Drive or file share for DPM.

    Do you use SAN functionality (FCOe, FC or iSCSI)?
    If you do, max supported in DPM 2012 was 16 TB.

    And no, you cannot share the Disk between a DPM 2012 and a DPM 2016

  • So you have presented an iSCSI LUN to your DPM 2012

    When you woukd like to use DPM 2016 parallel you cannot use the same LUN.

    But I guess your storage is aware of LUN masking so you could create a new dedicated LUN for DPM 2016

  • Thanks for the response.

    I am using iSCSI.

    Out of 18TB we have presented 15TB to the DPM 2012 and out of that 7TB is used bu the DPM.

    And i am planning to deploy DPM 2016 and have the same drive presented to it.
