Hyper-V Protection with DPM 2010 Beta - How to automatically protect new Virtual Machines
A great post about adding new VMs automatically in the DPM 2010 protection.
DPM team had a great question come into the DPM Newsgroup recently. How do I automatically protect new VMs added to a Hyper-V host using DPM?
In any virtualized environment, adding new VMs is a frequent
operation. While backup administrators can protect an entire Hyper-V
host using the DPM Management Console, the protection group had to be
modified manually to include the new virtual machines that have come up
on the Hyper-V host.
Angad, who closely follows the DPM community immediately got going
and came up with scripts to support the requested functionality. These
scripts have been validated in our in-house Hyper-V protection scale
You can find the scripts here.
