DPM Hyper-V backup, with TSM on the windows guest system RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have 150+ VM's in our environment, which we have started to backup with DPM.

    All servers have a TSM agent installed and running, doing offsite backup of user data.

    After we introduced DPM, we see more serveres fail there TSM backup.

    I run start my DPM Protection Group at 17:30 and TSM backups start at different times, but we have some cases where we can confirm that the backups have been running at the same time, and is failed with TSM.

    So I would like to hear some thoughts about this,
     - Is this really bad practice?
     - Should this not be a problem, and therefor a TSM completely issue?
     - I know I can run pre/post scripts with TSM, so could I stop a service, or otherwise force DPM not to run when TSM is running?
     - The opposite of above, can DPM run a script or something on the VM it is backing up?
     - Or is there something else I don't think of?

    Best regards, and thanks in advance
