Protection for Clustered Servers
Updated: November 1, 2008
Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2007
DPM 2007 supports shared disk clusters for file servers, Exchange Server 2003, SQL Server 2000, and SQL Server 2005. DPM 2007 supports both non-shared disk clusters and shared disk clusters for Exchange Server 2007.
For DPM protection agent installation, when you select a server that is a cluster node, DPM notifies you so that you can choose to install the protection agent on other nodes in the cluster as well.
End-user recovery is available for both clustered and nonclustered resources on clustered file servers.
On planned failover, DPM continues protection. On unplanned failover, DPM issues an alert that a consistency check is required.
