DPM 2010 RC co-locate SQL Server
I'm creating a protection group for SQL Server 2005 SP3 (CU8) with DPM 2010
RC. I have about 15-20 small databases and about 10-15 larger databases.
When I create the protection group the option to co-locate is checked (and
not gray), but when the protection group is created I end up with many 10gb
disk partitions. Isn't co-location supposed to prevent that?
I read that the default for co-location is 30 databases (how do I increase
that?) so I tried hand picking the larger databases from the list rather than
the auto option and only using those in my protection group....DPM 2010 Beta Exchange Cluster Recovery
I am experiencing a problem in DPM 2010 Beta. I was attempting to verify that
I was able to recover an Exchange Database from DPM. From the recovery tab I
expand the Exchange cluster, and then expand the “All Protected Exchange
Data”. I have 5 databases that are being backed up, when I click on any one
of them DPM collapses all of the folders to only show the “Recoverable Data”
folder with a plus next to it. Making it seem as though there is no data
available to recover.
Yes, DPM collapses all the folders if there are no recovery points for

Dell PowerVault 124T Tape Library Problem
We are running DPM 2007 with an attached Dell PowerVault 124T Tape Library.
We have an 8 tape magazine set up for 2 protection groups. Each protection
group is backing up to tape using a new tape daily. After 4 days, tape
backups fail, as the tape library/DPM does not recognize any free tapes
available. We have been unable to find a way to have a protection group reuse
a tape until it is full (or not use a new tape daily). Here is the error from

I am trying to setup DPM to DPM backup in my environment. The issue I have

They are both in the same domain.
They can both ping each other.
Both machines are Server 2008 R2 with DPM 2007 installed.

We have two DPM 2007 Servers operating within our company. We had an issue
with one of our file servers and therefore had to reinstall the DPM agent via
the DPM Agent tab. This server is backed up on the primary DPM server and
then again on the secondary for redundancy. The primary server can see the
DPM agent no problem and is backing up as expected. The secondary server is
backing up the data as usual, however it is continuious alerting the fact
that the agent isn't reachable.
How can I resolve this problem?
