DPM Data Encryption RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I can't find much material online about this.

    We are looking at 1. How best to enable DPM to encrypt the backups on the local disks and on the tapes.

    2. Highlight any risk and processes that would need to be taken to recover the encryption key etc if hardware/server was to fail.

    Could someone point me in the right direction or present some reading material.

    Using DPM 2016.

    kind regards, travis

  • 1. AFAIR extra encryption on local disks isn't possible. Encryption on tapes is possible, it's in the GUI when you create/change a protection group.

    2. That is for you to come up with.

  • I know this is a dead thread but Google is serving it up for people asking about encrypting DPM backups and I have found a solution: run DPM in a VM and then bitlocker the hosts volumes.

    I know, I know, it is absurd that in 2019 Microsoft don't allow you to keep your data encrypted when at rest but at least this seems to work.
