dpm 2010 backing up other dpm 2010

Creating an offiste dpm2010 backup of our two office locations. Right now the backup DPM (DPMbak) sits in the main office. All service packs for dpm 2010 are up to date on all three dpm servers.

DPMbak, is set it to backup both "onsite" dpm servers.
However, we can only get the "Protected servers" drop down list from one primary DPM (DPM1).
The other DPM (DPM2), only lists as itself. No "Protected servers" drop down list is available

Any ideas why dpm2 would not have a drop down list of its protected servers?

Here are the details

DPM1 and DPM2 are both on the same domain but at different offices.
DPM1 is at the same office as the DPMbak machine
DPM2 is at a different office connected via gateway VPN

hi there it seems that you didn´t configure DPM2 to be the secondary server.
