DPM 2012 R2 - Scale Out Protection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody,

    Within the last few days I was trying to Setup the scale out protection of DPM 2012 R2.
    The TechNet article isn't describe it clearly so I have to ask before I get lost.

    The DPM 2012 SP1 and R2 can protect a Cluster with more than one DPM as descibed here:

    the -add Switch seems to be working.

    But Flemming Riies writes:

    "So adding the same VM to mutiple DPM servers wont work"

    So scale out doesn't mean protecting a VM twice or more often. It only means I can use more than one DPM Server but every DPM is protecting different VMs?!

    At the end it's better to chain the first DPM Server of a Cluster if I wish to have a second backup if the first DPM Fails?
