Chapter 8:
Recovery Options
In the last two chapters, we looked at backing up servers and applications that are
critical today to many businesses. While doing this we also covered how to deploy
agents on your standard servers and servers running critical applications. Now
that we have covered backing up it is time to now cover restoring data and these
critical applications.
It is important to understand what capabilities available and limitations placed in
order to restore data and applications in DPM. In this chapter you will get an idea
of these. We will first explore recovery options in the DPM Administrator Console
as well as recovering files, folders, and shares. Next, you will see how to carry out
self service recovery for end-users using the DPM client works. Then we will go
into more advanced restores such as BMR (Bare Metal Recovery), and restoring of
applications. The applications we will look at restoring are Hyper-V, Exchange,
SQL, and SharePoint. You will see the cool features that DPM now offers such as
recovering Hyper-V VHDs, or item-level data from within these VHDs, SharePoint
item-level restores, and restoring a SQL database to a different instance. This chapter
is planned to arm you with the knowledge of what DPM can do in regards to
restores, so you can start performing your own restores today. Here are the specific
topics we will cover in this chapter:
• General recovery
° Recovery overview in the DPM Administrator Console
° Recovering files, folders, shares, and volumes
° Using self service recovery for end-users through the DPM client
° Recovering data using System State
