imageHi, Marc Reynolds here.  I wanted give you a quick update on an improvement in DPM Client Protection after installing the hotfix rollup package from March 2011.  With this hotfix rollup, System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 (DPM) now supports protecting up to 3000 client computers. Previously,  you would receive a warning when attempting to protect more than 1000 client computers.  If you are planning on using DPM to protect more than 1000 clients make sure to download and install the March 2011 DPM hotfix rollup documented in KB2465832 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2465832).  It is strongly recommended that you also increase the collocation factor from the default value of 10 to 30. This will permit up to 30 clients to collocate per replica volume.

To improve the collocation factor:

Key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\Collocation\Client
Value
DSCollocationFactor
Data
30
Type
DWORD

Hope this helps,
