Protection for clustered servers

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) supports shared disk clusters for file servers, Exchange Server 2003, SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005, and SQL Server 2008. DPM supports both non-shared disk clusters and shared disk clusters for Exchange Server 2007 and Exchange Server 2010.

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.
