  • Hi,

    What you need to configure to make you sure you never miss a backup-job and your datasources is always protected is to set up secondary DPM-servers that protects the data from your primary DPM-servers. Please read the following article to get an understanding about the concept:

    Back up DPM using a secondary server

    When you have your secondary DPM-servers in place you need to configure some kind of automation that switch-over the protection in case of a server-failure from you primary DPM-server to the secondary DPM-server. This is called Switch Protection and can out of the box only be done manually on a secondary DPM-server. In other words there is no automatic failover but this could done be using the following DPM PowerShell CMDlet:


    I hope this will give you a good starting point on how to plan your deployment!

    Kind Regards
