DPM 2016 Data Source Limits? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Prior versions of DPM had a 600 volume limit (300 replica and 300 recovery). Have the limits changed in DPM 2016?

    Under the old limits, we had to split all of our backups across 3 DPM servers. I'd love if I could consolidate back to one DPM server in DPM 2016.

  • Hi,

    The data source limit has not changed in DPM 2016 but since we introduced modern storage I can see the limit being raised in the future.

    I'm not sure if we actively monitor and prevent you from over protecting, but if you are using all Modern Storage you should not see any problems like bumping into LDM limits.
