The following are the network requirements for System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010:
- DPM 2010 must be deployed on a 64-bit
computer within a Windows Server 2008 or Windows
Server 2003 Active Directory domain. The domain controllers
must be running Windows Server 2008.
- DPM supports cross-forest data protection as
long as you establish a forest-level, two-way trust between the
separate forests. To set up a forest-level trust relationship, both
domains must be in Windows Server 2008 forest mode.
- If you are protecting data over a wide area
network (WAN), there is a minimum network bandwidth requirement of
512 kilobits per second (kbps).
