    Hello,

    You cannot backup a cluster shared volume using DPM 2007. DPM 2010 is the way to go. You can only install a dmp agent inside the vm, and the backup the vm. Host based backup is a no go.

    Gerth.

    This is more of a licensing question.

    We have a Microsoft Schools Agreement. I have heard Microsoft DPM 2010 is really cheap. I am looking at this as an alternative to the backup system which we are using which is really difficult to sort and manage but we do have Linux/Apple Servers.

    We have 3 VMware ESX Hosts running 11 Windows Server 2003,2008,2008 R2 servers and 2 Ubuntu Servers 8.04.
    We have 1 physical DC, 1 Exchange 2007 enterprise VM, 1 SQL Server VM, 2 Windows File Servers (1 2003 and 1 2008R2).

    It sounds like DPM will be a bargain! Apparantly its £55 for server license and £5 per client for each server which needs a DPM client.

    Surely this can’t be right, can someone can confirm that I am not going crazy!!

    Thanks

    If you have a school agreement, these prices can be right. But it really depends on the county you are in.
