Third-party tool that supports DPM
3.
Now manually create the replica by using the Restore to replica option from
a secondary DPM server or run the RestoreToReplica command in the
DPM Management Shell to restore from tape. Either of these options are how
you restore the replica. The Restore to replica option will be available in the
Recovery task area on the secondary DPM server. Choose the data sources
you need and go through the restore process. Instead of restoring the data
choose Restore to replica .
Third-party tool that supports DPM
Ideally you will want to use third-party software that supports DPM natively if
you are forced to use a third-party tool for your DPM backup. This will give you a
tool that will be intuitive to DPM and minimize the steps it will take to back up and
restore DPM.
Follow these steps to back up the database:
1.
From the console of the third-party backup program, browse to
%systemdrive%\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\DPMDB , and select the
DPM database. The filename of the DPM database is MSDPM2010.mdf .
2.
Select where you will back up your database to.
3.
Start the back up and you should end up with a .bak file when it is
all complete.
Follow these steps to back up the replicas:
1.
From the console of the third-party backup program expand the DPM server.
2.
Select the data on the protected computers that you want to back up.
3.
Select where you want to back up the data to.
4.
Start the back up.
Third-party tool that supports only VSS
Okay, so this is the option where your third-party backup supports VSS. You need to
make sure that this software does not modify data on the replica volumes. If it does
in anyway your backups could easily become corrupt. The safest backup type to use
to ensure the data will not be modified is copy.
Follow these steps to back up the database:
1.
From the console of the third-party backup program, browse to
%systemdrive%\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\DPMDB and select the
DPM database. The filename of the DPM database is MSDPM2010.mdf .
