DPM bloating VHD's? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently setup DPM 2012 with software VSS to backup virtual machines on CSV. Serialization is in place and the xml is in the config directory. However, we're getting heavy CSV disk consumption after backups run. We're seeing 14-20GB+ growth on CSV's each night. Has anyone seen this before? The change we made was the method used to backup VM's, going from a simple agent on each virtual machine to backing up the VM object from the host instead. 

    I did find this KB, but it was just released so I'm hesitant to throw it on a production DPM server. It also appears to address space issues on the DPM server, not the CSV or host.
