scdpm 2012 r2 client windows protection

Recommended Posts

To answer your first question, DPM has a feature called Self-Service Recovery. Here is a link that describes how to set it up: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/jj627988.aspx.

 

As for your second question, DPM has a backup level/option called Bare Metal Recovery. Here is a link about that: http://www.tech-coffee.net/restore-server-bare-metal-recovery-protection-dpm-2012r2/. However, this is more server related than client OS. And, it doesn't make an ISO-type image of the system, though it does backup the entire system for a full recovery.

DPM protects the OS, IF you configure a Protection Group to backup the System State.

 

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/hh757812.aspx

 

When DPM backs up the system state of a workstation or member server, the following components are protected:

  • The boot files
  • The COM+ class registration database
  • The registry
  • System files that are under Windows File Protection
