DPM Cluster backup on wrong network adapter. RRS feed

  • Question

  • On each clusternode we have 6 network adapters.
    2 of these adapter are reserved for ISCSI on a dual 40Gbit Infiniband controller.
    The domain ( and the cluster ) is on a 1Gbit adapter team.
    Cluester trafic is not running on the ISCSI adapters (according to Microsoft whitepaper)

    Now, when the DPM connects, and run backup of the cluster VM's the trafic is on the 1Gbit adapters.
    (Since DPM only see the registration on that 1 Gbit LAN / where the domain is)

    If we change the cluster registation to the iscsi LAN, it will not find the A/D / domain.
    We can not give the cluster an extra IP address (cluster.exe) only change the one ip for the cluster. 

    So how do we force the DPM to use the ISCSI 40Gbit backup adapter for backup ???
