DPM Management Shell
When you install DPM 2010 it includes a scripting shell called DPM Management
Shell also known as DMS . DMS is built on Windows PowerShell. IT professionals
familiar with PowerShell will be able to easily learn DMS. DMS is an
administrativefocused tool for DPM administrators. DPM administrators can use DMS to perform
many of the same functions that can be performed from the DPM Administrator
Console as well as some tasks that can only be performed from the shell.
A DPM administrator can use DMS to perform the same tasks in the areas of
protection, recovery, library and disk management. In fact when you perform the
tasks in the same areas in the DPM Administrator Console it is executing DMS
cmdlets. This means an administrator will get the same experience regardless of
using the UI or the shell. The other benefit of having DPM built this way is that
third-party vendors can easily develop tools to extend DPM's functionality through
PowerShell. A DPM administrator can even install DMS on other machines and
control DPM servers remotely through DMS. DMS can be installed on other servers
or client machines.
In this section you are going to learn about the DPM Management Shell and
learn some DPM cmdlets that can run from the shell as well as DPM scripts
that are available.
NOTE : The Data Protection Management shell for
DPM 2010 is not supported on 32 bit computers.
