data protection manager in hyper-v

I have a test copy of DPM 2012 r2 installed on a VM.

Wasn't thinking before I installed it, and now I don't know how I am going to attach disks to it!

I don't have a DAS that I can use. I have plenty of room on the host, however disks need to be presented as dynamic stand alone disks to be added to the DPM storage pool.

Any ideas please anyone?

"Using a virtual disk (.vhd/.vhdx) in the DPM storage pool is supported in DPM 2012 R2 only"

So you are on the right version :D

Just create a bunch of unformatted virtual disks, attach them to your DMP VM and present them.  Off you go, job done.
