How to protect other servers with DPM 2010 installed on a domain controller RRS feed

  • Question

  • "For a DPM server that is installed on a domain controller, only protection of data sources local to the DPM server is supported. You cannot install agents on other computers to configure protection."

    What a painfull limitation.

    At first sight seems as if there is just a registry key missing, when trying to attach an agent leading to the "Unable to configure security settings...". By the way. I added server to protect in the Distributed COM Users-Group.

    1638 0164 02/15 12:40:14.554 07 AgentCommunication.cs(623)   NORMAL <ProductionServer xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" ServerName="" DomainName="" NetBiosName="INET02" IsDPM="false" DPMserverName="" xmlns="" />

    Any trick?

    Greetings Peter

  • You really can't.
    I struggled with this feature before it was written on the technet (thanks Microsoft for adding this right after my issue :)). And i tried every possible way to do so.
