  • Hi,

    DPM can only protect data on systems that support installing a DPM agent on.  Basically Windows 2003 or later servers, and Windows XP and later Client OS.

  • Hi Lee,

    Mike is correct. With knowing that you may have another option here. If your QNAP has iSCSI (I know a lot of the QNAPS come with this feature) you could actually present the QNAP to a Windows server as local storage. You could still share the NAS storage out through Windows on your network. You could then install a DPM agent on that Windows server and protect the QNAP storage. This option would allow you to use the QNAP storage and protect it with DPM.
