Third-party tool that does not support DPM or VSS
DPMBackup must be used when using a third-party backup solution that does not
support the DPM Writer service or VSS. It is not recommended to use a third-party
backup solution that does not support the DPM Writer service or VSS. This makes
backing up your DPM server more complex. DPMBackup is a command-line tool
that can back up and restore DPM databases and replicas.
This tool creates backups of the DPM database and the DPM reporting database.
It creates read-only shadow copies of all the replica volumes on your DPM server.
It puts these shadow copies in in the following location on your DPM server:
%systemdrive%\Program Files\MicrosoftDataProtectionManager\DPM\
Volumes\ShadowCopy\ . These shadow copies will be organized by server name. Here
are the steps for creating the DPM database backup and the replica shadow copies.
Follow these steps to back up the DPM database:
1.
From an elevated command prompt run this syntax: DpmBackup.exe-db .
It will create a DPMDB.bak file at the following location: %systemdrive%\
Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy\
DatabaseBackups\ .
2.
From the console of the third-party backup program, browse to
%systemdrive%\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\
ShadowCopy\DatabaseBackups\ and select the DPMDB.bak and
ReportServer.bak databases.
3.
Select where you will back up the database to.
4.
Start the backup.
