2 DPM Servers - One Physical one Virtual RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I have a question regarding a theoretical situation where you have a physical DPM server with a tape drive attached and a virtual DPM with a disk pool. I would want to use the virtual one with the disk pool for short term backup and the physical server with the tape for long term backups. I'm not sure the DPM agents support 2 different servers to back them up.

  • Hi,

    DPM Agents doesn't support 2 different servers to backup.

    The solution would be to take the virtual server as Primary DPM Server and take the Physical Server as Secondary Server.

    The secondary will protect the replicas located on the Primary.

  • If the protected server isn't a workgroup/untrusted server, then you're stuck with only the physical dpm to perform the lt-backup
