  1. Install Protection AgentNow that we have DPM installed, it doesn’t protect our environment if there are no Agents installed. Start by launching the DPM console and navigating to the Management space. Next click on the Agents link. In the toolbar, click Install. On the Agent Installation Wizard, Agent Deployment Method page, there are 2 options to choose from. Since we are starting new, we will choose ‘Install Agents’. Then click Next.

  2. Install DPM Self Service RecoveryThe Self-Service Recovery Tool (SSRT) for System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) enables end users to recover SQL Server databases that are backed up by the DPM server, without any intervention from the DPM administrator. Start by mounting/extracting the ISO (just like when we installed DPM). On the splash screen, click the DPM Self Service Recovery link. Read and agree to the License Terms, and then click OK. On the DPM Self Service Recovery Tool page, click Install. The installation will be very quick. Then click Fin
  3. Installing SQL Server first is not required, as DPM will automatically install SQL Server for you as part of the application installation process. Since I install SQL on the local System Center server for each product, my example will allow DPM to install SQL on its own. If anyone is looking for instructions on installing SQL Server, please see my personal blog: http://adinermie.wordpress.com/lab-environment/system-center-2012-sp1-in-a-lab-installation-part-d-install-sql-server/

  6. Protection GroupsIn order for DPM to protect our data, we need to have the DPM Protection Agent installed. But that’s not enough. We also need to add the system to a Protection Group. That’s what we will document here. Start by launching the DPM console, and navigating to the Protection area. On the toolbar at the top of the console, click on New. On the Welcome page, review the information presented, and then click Next. On the Protection Group Type page, choose whether you are protecting Servers or Clients.

  7. Configure System Center Data Protection Manager – Add Disks Adding a Physical Disk to a Hyper-V Virtual Machine NOTE: Some of these steps will need to be completed on the physical Hyper-V host, and others will be completed in the DPM VM after you have installed the Operating System. In order for DPM to be able to use a hard drive for backups, it needs to be attached to the DPM system only. For example, even though we have virtual machine running DPM, we cannot use .VDHX hard drives. That means we need a physical disk from the Hyper-V host to be made available to the DPM VM. It is imp
  8. Install System Center Data Protection ManagerWe are now finally ready to install DPM.

  11. Introduction:I use Hyper-V in my LAB and that's what all these virtual machines will be running on. In my lab, I have Windows Server 2012 Datacenter installed as the server OS on the host machine. All other virtual machines will be running Windows Server 2012 Standard edition, with the graphical user interface (GUI). My hardware consists of the following: § Intel Xeon E5-2620 § Asus P90X79 WS § 64 GB G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series § 2 x 256 GB / 1 x 512 GB Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD § 1 x 150 GB HDD, and 1 x 250 GB HDD High Level PlanHere is a high level of what we are going to com
  12. I've got several remote office locations with file servers containing a good amount of data, but they have very poor (3Mbps) WAN connections. I've been tasked to set up DPM to back up these locations. Due to the size of the data and the lack of bandwidth, I'm going to need to get the techs out there to copy the data portions of the servers onto USB drives and send them to me so I can import them into the DPM storage here. But I’m having some problems finding the document that instructs a tech how to copy the initial data replica to a USB drive, then docs on how I can import this data.
