  • Hi

    you just take the "normal" steps for telling DPM which network card to use as backup network. There are several options

    1) edit hosts file of the dpm server, putting the IP address of primary DPM,so DPMSERVER resolves PrimaryDPM to the backup network interface ip. add the simple hostname and the fqdn.

    - on Primary DPM this has to be done as well - or create a static route so all traffic to Secondary DPMSERVER is routed through the backup network interface.

    2) you use theAdd-BackupNetworkAddress cmdlet in the DPM management shell
