Primary DPM 2010 server bare metal backup to Secondary DPM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    Is it possible to protect the Primary DPM server own bare metal with the secondary Dpm? Because (unfortunatly) we have another applycations on the  Primary DPM server.
    The Secondary DPM is protecting the primary SQL DB-s, this is working fine, but the Bare metal always failed. The system writer is running on the main DPM. The event log is clean. A want to check the DPM agent log on the DPM server but I cant find anything.

    The Secondary DPM said: "DPM failed to create the backup. If you are backing up only System State, verify if there is enough free space on the protected computer to store the System State backup.  On protected computers running Windows Server2008, verify that Windows Server Backup (WSB) is installed and that it is not performing any other backup or recovery task. (ID 30214 Details: Internal error code: 0x809909FB)"

    Window Backup is need to be installed on primary DPM , or what?

  • Hi

    Yes you can preform BMR for the primary DPM server on the secondary DPM server.

    To be able to make a System State backup of a 2008 server you must have the WSB feture installed and at least 1 GB of free space on the system drive (or where the "WindowsImageBackup" is located).
