DPM 2010 Backup Network in different Subnet/VLAN RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,


    I want to create DPM 2010 Backup Network. Below are the IP configurations.


    DPM 2010 server Backup Network IP:

    DPMServer =


    Protected Servers Backup Network IP (Secondary NIC for Backup)

    Server1 =

    Server2 =

    Server3 =

    I used DPM Management shell command as:

    add-backupnetworkaddress -dpmservername DPMSERVER -address -sequencenumber 1


    With this command, it is not working. The traffics are still flowing through regular network.


    Please help us to resolve this problem

  • Hello,

    It seems as if you forgot to add the subnet portion. (bolded below)
    Add-DPMBackupNetworkAddress -DpmServername DPM -Address -SequenceNumber 1

    Also, I have never seen DPM backup network work without a host file on both the DPM and the target servers. This too is something you may want to look into.
