    Cluster Backup

    Hi there, I couldn't find a separate forum for backup so I gonna post this here. If this is not the right location please feel free to move it.

    We have a HyperVCluster comprised of 5 Dell R710's and connected to a NexSAN Sataboy shared storage.

    What are the suggestions for backup up this cluster? We have tried backup exec but it was hugely unsuccessful .

    I use Data Protection Manager and do the bare metal backups onto a backup server.

    Again DPM for full Vm backups, then data backed up using remote backup provided by our LEA

    With regards to DPM, does anybody know if there is a standalone installation rather than having to download the entire System Center pack?

    I have an option called "System Center 2012 DataCenter" because I have bought it. Then when I choose to download this, DPM is on the list separate.
