  • Question


    Is it possible to have more then one Storage Pool and specify which pool a Protection Group is to use?


    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

  • I assume there is only 1 storage pool, because I haven’t seen a description how to add an additional storage pool to DPM. I only found how to add disks to the storage pool.

    However it is possible to assign a custom volume to a protection group. This allows you to specify that the data is not saved on storage from the storage pool, instead the custom volume is used. This is something that might be interesting in SAN environment. I haven’t used this kind of advanced configuration, yet.
