Continuous Protection Server

Created: 18 Mar 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 1 comment

    We have purchased a large (5TB) storage server, and have it broken up in multiple volumes(1TB each).  I know that by default you are not allowed to have a CPS backup job backup destination on the same server as the source of the job.

I'm wondering if there is a workaround, preference I can uncheck, etc... for that.

I have a 1TB volume that I have setup for the CPS destinations.  I am wanting to do some continous protection of some data on another volume on the same server.  I'm not worried about the redundancy if the server fails, as it is on a RAID 5, plus being backed up to tape.

Is there a way to accomplish this?

*ps...if this is in the wrong section, I apoligize, and please feel free to move it*

Unfortunately there are no workarounds available.The Protection Server (destination) and the Business Server (source) cannot be the same.
