Another DPM 2010 question!

I'm trying to understand the DPM 2010 configuration that we use in our company. Nobody does at the moment, and it's not running ok, so i want to understand it and configure it the way it should be.

The storage pool configured on the DPM server contains 3 disks, as shown in the picture;

When i take a look at disk management, i see this;

DPM Disks
Can someone explain this configuration for me?

Are all the volumes on the disks, volumes for all the protected servers?
We have a SAN connected to the network. Are the disks something like storage on the SAN?
Do i need more then one disk in the storage pool, or could i use only 1 larger disk?

The 3 storage pool disks are physical disks presented to the DPM server, most likely from a SAN. That correlates to Disk 1, 2 and 3 the operating system can see in Disk Management.

DPM will carve out dynamic volumes, which you can see in Disk Management, as it protects a server.

You don't need more than one disk in the storage pool; you could use either multiple or a 1 larger disk (in your example it looks like DPM is using all of the 3 storage pool disk presented to it).
