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 runs.

You can find the scripts here.
