Urgent Restoring Exchange 2010 DB's from DAG in DPM 2012 SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Currently we are using DPM 2012 SP1 and backing up mailboxes on our DAG.

    We have 2 Exchange servers part of our DAG 4 mailbox DB's total.

    One of our DPM 2012 SP1 servers is backing up the following:

    Florida Mailbox A-L

    Florida Mailbox M-Z

    Kentucky Mailbox A-L

    Kentucky Mailbox M-Z

    From KentuckyExchange1.Domain 

    But our other DPM2012 SP1 server is not backing up DAG with FloridaExchange1.Domain in it.

    My questions is with DPM 2012 SP1 Server number 1 that is getting backups would it be able to restore the DB's to the Other exchange server or can it only restore to itself?  In other words would we need to backup the DAG at each exchange location?

  • Hi Jmurbach,

    A datasource could be protected by only one DPM server.

    So you can restore your data on any computer as long as you have a DPM protection agent from the same DPM server install on it.


    DPM1 protect Server1: You will be able to restore data on Server1 not on server2

    DPM2 protect Server2: You will be able to restore data on Server2 not on server1
