To protect an Exchange Server 2010 DAG node, you’ll need to install a protection agent on the node. . For instructions about installing protection agents, see.
Read about Installing Protection Agents
You can protect Exchange Server DAG nodes from different DPM servers, but a node can only be protected by one DPM server. For example if DAG1 has nodes: N1, N2, N3, N4, and N5, you can deploy DPM1 to protect N1, N2, and N5, and DPM2 to protect N3 and N4.
The maximum supported amount of data that you can protect with a single DPM server is 120 TB.
You can protect DAG’s that have up to 16 nodes with a single server or up to 10,000 mailboxes with a DPM server. This limit applies to all of Exchange.
When you install a protection agent on a DAG node this warning displays: "You cannot protect cluster data in the selected nodes without installing agents on the other nodes." This warning doesn’t relate to Exchange and you can ignore it.
