Single Server for DFM and SnapProtect

Hi.  I'm looking at various options for a customer to get backups of their CIFS data snapshots onto tape. The filer is a 2240 and I'm looking at SnapProtect as one option.  Is it supported or

recommended to put DFM and the various SnapProtect components on a single server?  We're trying to keep things simple and need a single-server solution.  The server will also connect to a SAS autoloader and utilize remote NDMP to stream the data to tape.  (We are also looking at using BackupExec with the NDMP option.)




Re: Single Server for DFM and SnapProtect

DFM/On Command Unified manager on any other system with a database is not a supported or recommended configuration.
