Pagefile exclusion for VHDs is not functional System Center DPM 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Release Notes for Data Protection Manager in System Center 2012 R2 state that:

    Pagefile exclusion for VHDs is not functional

    Description: Pagefile exclusion for virtual hard disk files (VHDs) is not functional.

    Workaround: None.

    I feel silly asking this in the forums, but my mind just can't wrap around the fact that this feature (that was just recently added in DPM 2012 SP1) is broken in the new release of 2012 R2.  Does anyone with actual knowledge of the product have any additional info on this issue?  Do we need to wait for a service pack to fix it or are there possibly ANY workarounds or situations where it might be used?

    TIA

  • Hi,

    This is a documentation error and will get it addressed.  DPM 2012 R2 RTM does still support page file VHD exclusion same as DPM 2012 SP1.
