Agent Install on EBS 2008 Failing
I am running DPM 2007 on Windows Storage Server 2003 (Dell DP600 appliance)
and trying to protect EBS 2008 which is virtualized. However, I followed the
technet article here to setup things:
But I am unable to successfully install the agent on the EBS 2008 servers
and get them to talk to DPM.
I followed the last part of - To install a DPM protection agent. The agents
appear to be installed on the Management, Security and Messaging servers, but
cannot seem to attach properly to the DPM server. They show in Err...Setting Right margin in Onenote 2010
Onenote 2010 is great but I haven't figured out how to set the right
margin in a note.
Here is a screenshot shpwing the problem. I would like to set the
margin closer to the right side of the page.
When I click on a text box, i can't seem to widen it.
When I go to View|paper Size, I want to use Auto paper size so the
note keeps growing in length. When I select this option, all the other
boxes are grayed out.
Any help appreciated.

I have a SBS server that I am using backup exec to backup the entire system
every day. What part(s) of the exchange store or logs should I be excluding
from the data backup? the below note is in the backup exec help section:
Note As a general practice, it is recommended that you exclude transaction
log directories from the file system backup.
As you know the mail stores are in the same directory as the transaction
logs so does this mean I should really exclude the entire directory, or just
the transaction logs?

Yes. 6 protection groups, 10 servers, 20 vms on a 6 node hyper-v cluster with

I saw Cal's 8/8/07 comments. There had been some hope that 2008 would
see "more significant" (my characterization) improvements than we have had
these last number of years. I know Dick moved from 2004 to 2007, but even
allowing the Nuke-the-Bills fix up, he seemed more tactical in upgrading
than happy with 2007.

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
I just purchased an upgrade form 2004 to 2008 office for Mac. I downloaded the SW and followed the instructions for install.
Part of that was to find older versions on my mac and remove them, which I did.
I then launched Entourage and it told me to complete the install i need to locate the older version which earlier it told me to delete.

Hello Please check the link from the technet forums I posted.
Suggested to check out the new threads instead. Basically there is an option
in DPM to always choose the passive node in a CCR cluster. I've heard there
is a problem though where a consistency check is required and it can transfer
up to 90% of the data.
Why is DPM doing a block level? Isnt it easier to just check the log files
and the database files instead? I'm not an exper...Exporting calendar in csv file

I'm trying to find out if in DPM 2010 a DPM to DPM backup is supported
across untrusted domains? From my reading it appears to not be supported but
this is a pretty common/useful scenario for a number of companies.
If this is supported can the one DPM server backup multiple DPM servers from
multiple untrusted domains?
One way to solve this is by establishing a two way trust between the DPM
machines domains. But protecting two different servers without trust between
the servers domains in not supported. We will consider this in future DPM

When I tried to create a new protection group on the secondary DPM, I unchecked the short term option (disk) and only select the long term option (tape), the "Next" button will get greyed out.
Any ideas why is this happening? It happens to all except when I try to protect the Primary DPM or protect itself (secondary DPM).

How long can I expect a consistency check to take? If a consistency check
takes days...what happens to my backups?
The time to complete a consistency check depends on the change rate for the
data, the available network bandwidth, and the time that has passed since
the previous successful synchronization job.
