DPM limitations on Server/SQL 2008 R2? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are currently running DPM 2012 R2 on a Windows 2008 R2 server using SQL 2008 R2.

    We are currently looking into upgrading our DPM environment (for various reasons), but will continue to use DPM 2012 R2 for the time being.

    I read somewhere that deduplication will not work  when running Windows Server 2008 R2.  That is one of the reasons we planned to go with Windows Server 2012 R2.

    My questions are these: Are there other limitations that should drive us to 2012 R2 OS?   And is there anything in DPM we'd be losing if we continue to use SQL 2008 R2 instead of upgrading to SQL 2012?

    Thank you.
