Secondary DPM 2012 workgroup protection RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that in DPM 2010 it was not supported to backup workgroup protection sources to a secondary DPM server. Now that I have upgraded both primary and secondary DPM to 2012, my secondary DPM server can NOW see the workgroup/untrusted computers, and it allows me to add them to a Protection Group. This is very good news to all of us that are protecting workgroup/untrusted servers. However, at the end of hte wizard, I am getting an Access Denied error. I am guessing this is because the secondary DPM server does not have the local user account that I created between my primary DPM server and the workgroup server.

    What is the process for protecting a workgroup/untrusted server to a Secondary DPM 2012 server? NOTE: I am not using certificate protection.

  • Hi,

    yes, we did enhance Secondary protection for servers in a workgroup but only for those servers using certificate based authentication (CBA) and this is now documented here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh757801.aspx

  • So it looks like CBA authentication is fully supported for secondary protection, but not for the local user account scenario. Thanks for the info....
