Installation of Data Protection Manager RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Sir,

        I am new in deploying DPM. Customer has 2 sites - Main and DR sites.

    Main Site: 2 x Exchange 2010 Server formed as DAG  (DAG1)

    DR Site: 1 x Exchange 2010 Server join into DAG1.

        Customer will deploy DPM as a solution to cover Both Main and DR site.

    Q1. Should we need to setup 3x exchange agent of DPM for solution?

    Q2. Does requirement of DPM require at least DPM 2010?

    Q3. Must it has DPM for AD cover for mailbox restoration?

  • Hi Joe,

    A1. Yes, All Exchange Servers will need a DPM agent installed.

    A2. For Exchange 2010 protection you will need DPM 2010

    A3. Didn't quite understand your question but to restore Exchange you don't need to have a DPM agent installed on your AD
