  • Hi,

    DPM is not supported on a cluster node - please use a single purposed server for DPM or virtualize it.

    As per this TechNet page, look under Limitation.

    You can install DPM on the operating system volume or on a different volume. 

    DPM is designed to run on a dedicated, single-purpose server. Don’t install DPM on:

    • A server running the Application Server role
    • An Operations Manager Management server
    • A server running Exchange
    • A server running on a cluster node
