Merge the DataSourceGroups.xml Files from two CSV Clusters. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    I need to backup two hyper-v csv clusters from the same DPM server.
    Cluster 1 is based on a Windows 2008 R2 installation.
    Cluster 2 is baded on a Windows 2012 installation.
    Is it possible to configure this automatic. I don't want to merge the XML files manually everytime I run the DSConfig.ps1 script from the two nodes.

  • Hi,

    Windows 2012 hyper-v clusters using csv v2 volumes do not need to be serialized. Dpm can perform parallel backups without the need of a hardware provider on windows 2012 based clusters.

    Be sure to install this hotfix.

    Virtual machine enters a paused state or a CSV volume goes offline when you try to create a backup of the virtual machine on a Windows Server 2012-based failover cluster
