Running parallel backups of data sources in the same protection group

    Question

  • Hello everyone

    Is there a way to get DPM to run parallel backups of data sources in the same protection group.  We used to see 3 jobs from the same data source run at the same time but since DPM 2016 Ur4 we are now only seeing one. We do have HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\2.0\Configuration\MaxAllowedParallelBackups set to 3 and we are now running version 1801

    Thanks.

  • We are seeing the same thing. 1 running at a time. Come on Microsoft

  • Same issue here with DPM 2016 UR4. Have you resolved this? Does installing UR5 help?

  • No, can only confirm that DPM 2016 UR5 didn't fix the issue.

    Still, I'm not sure parallel jobs are controlled by mentioned registry key anymore - the old support article https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff634220.aspx states it's valid only when using hardware VSS provider (which we're not using). But we did see multiple concurrent jobs targetting the same host before, so ...
