DPM and VMWare Protection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are looking into backing up are vmware servers using DPM.  We did some testing and they are running fine.  However, we were wondering when it takes a snapshot the very first time a new production server gets added to the backup, where does it store the data at on vmware?


    If my server C: is 80 and there is 28GB of data on it, during my first snapshot where would vmware store it at so DPM can grab it? Does it take a snapshot of the whole 28GB for its first backup in DPM? Or does it work differently?

    We want to make sure we do not run of out datastore space when we do multiple servers at a time.

    Thank you.
