Hi all,

I am just about to start looking into using DPM for backup/recover of 1 exchange server, 1 sharepoint server and 1 MSSQL2008.

Can anyone advise on the requirements? A brief description? How many licenses? An addition server to install it on? Can it live on our SCCM server?

Any clues and pointers FROM EXPERIENCE greatly appreciated.

Neil.

Hi iam using DPM since the first Version was released.

Licensing
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb808748.aspx

For 1 Exchange, 1 Sharepoint and 1 Sql you need 3 Enterprise Licenses.

Requirements:

Basicly you have to understand how the DPM works to define which kind of storage and how much storage you needs, depending on your Backupplan.
DPM syncs everything on itself and those files you can backup to tape. Backup TO Disk-To Tape. You cant Backup to Tape what you dont have on Disk....

We use Windows Server 2008R2 64 Bit, Raid5 as Storage for the sync files ( maybe you get some cheap sata drives....) and a Tandberg 48 Tape Library for the tape Backup.
The System has to be 64bit if you want to use DPM 2010.

DPM should not be installed on any SCCM Server, cause the huge traffic could rise some problems, we tried it and we had timeouts etc, so i would not suggest this.
if you need any further assistance, just ask.
