DPM Protection group selection RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are trying to use DPM 2010 to backup a couple folders on a hard drive of a server, let say the S drive folder A and folder B.

    I created the protection group for the folder A in the S drive, however, I cannot create another protection group for the folder B in the same S drive. e.g. We would like to backup these 2 folders, A on Monday, B on Tuesday.

    It allows us to select both folders under the same protection group but not separate protection group. (The check box for backup is missing on the S drive when we create a second protection group)

    Is this by design or there is some configurations/settings that can be customized?

  • Hello,

    This link may shed some light on your situation.

    You cannot include data sources from the same volume in different protection groups.
    You can include data sources from more than one volume in a protection group.
    Data sources that are members of other protection groups and unprotected data sources that reside on a volume already protected by another Protection group are displayed but cannot be selected.
    When you select a parent folder or share, its subfolders are automatically selected and cannot be de-selected.
