My Number 1 Reason To Upgrade
>>> Can Disable Daily Tape Backups for Saturday and Sunday
What's your reason(s) for upgrading?
How is it working out for you?
Yes. 6 protection groups, 10 servers, 20 vms on a 6 node hyper-v cluster with
csv. Runs great. A few quirks here and there but overall great. A far cry
from our last backup solution. I basically set it and forget it. Check it
when I get in to the office in the morning.
...DCM for DPM 2007 and DPM 2010
Does anyone know if a DCM pack is available for DPM 2007 and DPM 2010?
If you are looking for System center configuration management pack
for DPM 2007 and DPM 2010 they are available for DPM health monitoring. If
you want DPM 2010 Management pack please mail me at
praveend-at-microsoft-dot-com. The closest answer to DCM pack for DPM would
be DPM's Best practice analyzer guidelines which can be downloadable from

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...Untrusted error on RU 7 auto update s
We continue to have problems with multiple clients trying to get the auto
update to work. We configure the patchconfig setup which looks to take fine
on RU7. We then go to an Outlook CRM client where it says it needs to update
- sees the RU7- then bombs with an Untrusted error which shows as pointing to
the MS site. However, the URL download key in the registry is correct and we
can't find any other reason it's point to the MS site. We have now had this
come on two seperate customer updates and on the first, we just did it
manually, this client has 75 seats. Any clue?
...DPM to DPM untrusted
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

I have setup a secondary DPM with only tape capabilities (no disk available).
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).

I have a 735 GB volume I'm using DPM 2010 on. If I throw it a do a
consistency check......it been running for over 5 hours. I plan on
protecting a larger file server with millions of files and over 4 TB of data.
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.
Here is a good reference chart:

We've disconnected the HD-cabinet with the DPM volumes and started
installing Windows 2008 x64 on two new harddisk. It all went fine until
we re-connected the HD-cabinet. Windows 2008 added all left over drive
letters starting from D: to Z: and connected these drive letters to the
DPM volumes. When removing one of the drive letters, the system got
unresponsive and after 15 minutes I had to reset the machine.
Can this behavier, automatically adding drive letters to DPM volumes
when connecting the HD-cabinet, be prevented?

I have an 11TB Raid on my DPM server. It is GPT and formated NTFS. I can add

It shouldn't be formatted, no drive letter either. You should see it in
diskmgmt.msc, but not in My Computer for example. Then add to DPM pool, DPM
will format it when it creates volumes for your different workloads or

Is there going to be an upgrade path from DPM 2007 to 2010?
Yes. Look at the following DPM 2010 documentation:
"DPM supports upgrading from DPM 2007 SP1 on a Windows Server 2008 x64-bit
operating system to DPM 2010. If DPM 2007 SP1 is installed on a Windows
Server 2003 x64-bit operating system, you must upgrade to Windows Server
2008 before upgrading to DPM 2010".

backed up by DPM. I wanted to find out if there are any restrictions
regarding backing up IP Sec hosts vs non IP Sec hosts in the same domain. Any
info will be appreciated. Thanks!
There is no restrictions on IP sec policies on DPM as IP sec policies
work at much lower layer than what DPM uses. But the policies should be in
such a way that both DPM and Production servers should be able to
communicate with each other, like network share browsing etc..(any windows

If you are protecting a DPM server with a DPM server, when you create a
protection group and drill down into your primary DPM server....what should
you choose for protection? If I select the C drive checkbox and system state
is that enough? I noticed that even though C is selected, not all things
under the DPM\Volumes\DiffArea or DPM\volumes\replica are selected. Seems
like the checkboxes stop at dpm\volumes\diffarea\servername\file system. Do
i need to select these as well?

to the 2ndary server should the primary one fail?

I have two machines installed with DPM 2010. One is currently backing up my
Exchange Server but I wish to use the second one for Offsite
Replication/Disaster Recovery. Everytime I try to install the DPM Agent on
the primary machine it tells me I am not allowed to install the Agent on a
DPM Server. Can you tell me how to install this?
You do not need to install agent separately on DPM machine. The agent
functionality is made available as part of DPM installation itself. You can
go ahead and start the protection.
