Will DPM 2010 automatically expand replica and recovery point volumes for SCR storag group backups? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • We've noticed that DPM isn't really able to tell how much space to allocate to SCR replicas like it does for the CCR node backups and that doesn't appear to have changed with our upgrade to DPM 2010. Will that also affect it's ability to automatically expand the volumes like it does for CCR nodes?

  • We've done some testing and when we create the initial replica for backups of SCR databases DPM doesn't find the initial size of the database so we don't think it will expand the replicas automatically either. Can you confirm this?

  • When you say it doesn't find the size you mean that the replica volume is created but its size is too small compared to the actual size of your DB, is this correct?

  • Pete,

    Do you still need help with this?  can you give more information on what DPM shows for the initial size?  Is it smaller than was it needs to?
