Protecting computers in workgroups and untrusted domains

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager

System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) enables you to protect computers that are in untrusted domains or workgroups.

The security for a production computer in an untrusted domain or workgroup is provided by using a local user account. The DPM agent uses Windows Challenge/Response (NTLM) authentication by using the local user credentials that are specified following the installation of the DPM agent on the protected computer.

Computers in untrusted domains or workgroups require local installation of the DPM agent. They must then be added to DPM by using the Install Agent Wizard, and by providing the same credentials that were specified when configuring the DPM agent by using SetDpmServer with the –isNonDomainServer parameter after the agent is installed on the protected computer. Any updates to the DPM agent on computers in untrusted domains or workgroups require a manual agent upgrade.
