Secondary DPM Configuration
Posted on 2013-01-06
I am currently trying to configure a secondary DPM (both are 2012) to protect our primary server.
I am not receiving any errors but am not sure what configuration decisions to make.
Currently our Primary DPM is configured to protect itself. With the addition of a Secondary DPM, should I stop that?
When I attempt to protect the PDPM's C: from SDPM, It discovers the mount points for all of the replicas protected by PDPM, and asks to add these, should I?
After passing those messages, I am advised that the source (C:) cannot be protected because it is protected on the primary server.
my PDPM currently protects its own C: and system state.
Should I unprotect C: on the primary so I can do it from the Secondary, and do I need to add those mount points?
I have been unable to find a good configuration guide online, other than paraphrasing of "protect the bits you want", which is not technical enough!
