Configuring DPM backup on servers
There are certain requirements that a server must fulfill before DPM can protect it.
The operating systems that are supported include Windows Server 2003, Windows
Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2. Core, Standard, Enterprise, and
Datacenter editions of Windows Server 2003/2008/R2 are all supported. Another
requirement is that any protected volumes must be formatted as NTFS. DPM uses
the Volume Shadow Copy Service to create a snapshot of the protected data and this
needs at least 1 GB free space on the protected volume.
The pageile should be set to 0.2 percent the size of all recovery point volumes
combined, this is in addition to the recommended size of 1.5 times the amount of
memory in the server. When the pageile is not set correctly this can cause protected
data on DPM to become inconsistent. You also need to make sure the servers you
want to protect have certain Windows Updates applied. These updates are:

NOTE : All of these updates and hotixes are required for protecting
file servers. Application specific servers such as Exchange or
SharePoint will require different updates and hotixes and we will
cover this in Chapter 7 when we discuss each application.
