System Center 2012 R2 DPM installed as VM backup another VM configured on the same host machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have following setup:

    - Backup System: System Center 2012 R2 DPM installed as VM

    I have two questions:

    1) I want to protect a VM that happens to be on the same host with DPM, is it possible to do this kind of backup? the storage pool composed of vhdx using DAS.

    2) I checked the document online about host/guest level backup, I installed the DPM agent on the host machine but I only want to backup particular VM on that machine, by definition it should be included in host level backup, but I only want to backup entire information about specific VM (related: VM configuration file, virtual hard drive(s), etc), is it possible to do this?

    Thanks in advance,

    JL.

    Yes, that is supported. As long as you don't backup the DPM VM itself.
