DPM 2012 and Options for BMR of Server 2003

I understand that DPM 2012 does not support BMR for Server2003.

I have a couple of Virtual 2003 Servers running on Hyper-V (2012 Std). I can back up user data fine. Are there any other options besides SRT for doing a BMR of those 2003 servers?

yes.. already configured many servers which are running on Vmware / hyperv/ virtualbox../ Zen..

no problem reported.. they do not matter if its virtual server or physical.. there role is just to take volume level backup

download trial version and check it out if this works for you.


I am not sure they give BMR CD / ISO with trial version but at least you can backup server and check if that backup agent is not hampering your server performance ..

if you are looking monthly rental option then you can try with Zenith BDR

I am sorry to say but you have to switch backup agent ..

I mean to say you need to install other company backup agent like shadow protect or acronis which support Windows 2003 server Bare metal recovery ..

in short DPM2012 will not support bare metal recovery for Window 2003 server.

Will these work ok on a virtual server?
