DPM Recommended Installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There, 

    I'm new to DPM and need some guidance on the correct installation arrangement.  

    We have a simple network scenario:  1 HYPER-V Host (Non Domain) with 3 VMs (DC, SQL, IIS)

    I am trying to figure out the best way to accomplish host based backups that will store backups in a partition on the Host.  Should I create a new VM on the domain for DPM with the Hyper-V role installed and then install the agent on the host, or should I install DPM / SQL on the physical Hyper-V host?

    Also, should I install a stand alone SQL instance on the DPM VM or Host, or should I utilize the existing SQL VM instance?

    Sorry for the ignorance.  After a couple of days reading, I can't seem find a clear direction that I'm comfortable with.

    Thank you in advance.

  • I am going for a VM installed DPM using a Remote SQL with the agent installed on the Host.  Please still answer with suggestions as I could any advice or comments.
