DPM 2010 installing on host hyper-v machine, but host isn't part of the domain...
Posted on 2011-10-27
My network is in production, but my backups are lacking and making me nervous.
I have SCDPM 2010 disc sitting on my desk now for a month or so, I figure its time to set it up.
I start researching, and from what I've read you can't install DPM on a machine that's not part of the domain.
My network configuration is this:
Host: Server 2008 R2, Hyper-v Role (workgroup) (not joined to the domain)
Virtual Machine: Hyper-v Server 1: Sbs 2008
Virtual Machine: Hyper-v Server 2: Server 2008 R2, SQL 2008
The Host Server is NOT part of the domain. I was planning on installing DPM to the host machine, but i was told before the setup to keep the host machine off the domain, so I never joined it. (I don't really know the reasoning for this, but it sounded logical at the time, and still to keep it off the domain, since the computer is ONLY used for virtualization.
Will I be able to install DPM on the host machine that's part of it's own workgroup, not a member of the domain, and will I be able to use the SQL 2008 server with DPM?
How should I go about installing DPM in this scenario?
