Backing up DPM using a secondary DPM server
See the following diagram on DPM Chaining:
Protecting DPM with a secondary server can be used as a DR solution for onsite or
offsite. To use this solution as an offsite you would simply set up a site to site VPN
that the two DPM servers could communicate over. The two DPM servers would
also need to be in the same domain or in a fully trusted domain. It is recommended
that the secondary DPM server is built on the same site. First, let the data
synchronize and then move the secondary DPM server offsite. Here are the steps to
enable protection of a primary DPM server on a secondary DPM server:
From your secondary DPM server install the DPM protection agent on
the primary DPM server. (you can find the agent installation process in
Chapter 6 ).
On your secondary DPM server open the DPM Administrator Console .
Click on the Protection tab.
Create a new Protection Group.
