Data Storage pool setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a physical DPM server attached via an HBA to a tape library for long term backup.  I would like to set up short term disk backup to our iSCSI SAN, located on a separate cluster.

    Even though I've attached the VHD locally using Disk Management, my DPM Management Console does not recognize the disk as a candidate for my storage pool.

    How can I add a VHD on a remote server as part of my storage pool?

  • Hi,

    You cannot attach a .vhd in disk management and use that for a DPM storage pool.  You will need to connect to a iscsi target so it shows up as a physical disk in disk management.
