  • Hi,

    So in Failover Cluster manager, under the services and applications, you have Virtual machines listed ?   If not, you need to make a Virtual machine and select an existing VM from the list to make it highly available, then DPM should enumerate it under the cluster.  If it does not enumerate them, make sure the Hyper-V Writer is started on all nodes of the cluster.

  • Hi,

    The fist screen shot is only an informational message, and is normal.

    DPM cannot protect CSV volumes directly, only guest VM's residing on the CSV volumes.

    Once you create some highly available Guests, they will be protectable under the cluster.

  • Hi Mark,

    I have some Guest VM's residing on the CSV. But i am unable to enumerate them under the cluster server.

    Are there any settings on the cluster i need to make so that DPM can enumerate the CSV Volumes under the cluster ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,

    Anurag
