DPM and Netwrok Traffic RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am wondering if I can assign storage LUN on the server that I want to Backup then let the DPM to backup directly to this LUN instead of let the backup files come through the network to the DPM server then store it to DPM disk.

  • Hi,

    If the DPM storage pool lun and the protected data source Lun share the same fabric, then you can perform initial replication and recoveries using san to san copies.  However, normal backups are always performed over the network.  You can configure a dedicated backup network for DPM to use to segregate backup traffic from production traffic.

    See the following TechNet page for using backup network.
