    SetDpmServer.exe -dpmServerName s-backup.blah -isNonDomainServer -userName dpmadmin -productionServerDnsSuffix s-dmzmachine


    I get this error

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\bin>SetDpmServer.exe -dpm
    ServerName s-backup.blah -isNonDomainServer -userName dpmadm
    in -productionServerDnsSuffix s-dmzmachine
    Make sure that this computer is not part of a perimeter network. DPM does not su
    pport protection of computers on a perimeter network.
    Enter the password for 'dpmadmin' to connect to 's-backup.blah':
    Retype the password to confirm:
    Enter the password for 'dpmadmin' to connect to 's-backup.blah
    Configuring dpm server settings and firewall settings for dpm server =[s-backup.
    Error (ID 32697). The specified DNS suffix is invalid.

    Can I not install the agent in on a machine in my dmz as I thought this was possible, if I can am I missing anything out?
