Re-establishing protection after recovering the primary DPM server
NOTE : If your DPM database is hosted on a remote SQL instance you
can either back up the DPMDB using a SQL backup tool or you can
run this syntax for a DPM database that is on a remote SQL instance:
Follow these steps to back up the replicas:
From the same command-prompt window run: DPMBackup.exe–
replicas . This is going to place shadow copies of your protected data
here: %systemdrive%\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\
ShadowCopy\ . Remember these will be organized by protected computers.
From the console of the third-party backup program browse to
%systemdrive%\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\
ShadowCopy\ and select the folders of the protected computer that you
want to back up.
Select where you want to back up the data to.
Start the back up.
Re-establishing protection after recovering the
primary DPM server
Many times after you restore a DPM server, the agents for your protected computers
will show errors. These will need to be repointed and synced to the newly restored
DPM server. To do this:
1. Go to your protected computers.
2. From a command prompt navigate to: %systemdrive%\Program Files\
3. Run SetDpmServer.exe–dpmServerName YOURDPMSERVERNAMEGOESHERE .
Go back into DPM and refresh the agent status of your protected computers.
