DPM 2010 End User Recovery what to backup RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,

    We are using DPM 2010 and backing up at Volume levels for our File Services.

    Our End User Recovery is not working. What are the best practices for EUR? What exactly we should backup?

    Is it Volumes like E:\, F:\ or at Share Level like Depart1, ITdata etc. Please give us some detail information.

    Thank you

  • Hi Abul,

    If your end user data is located in shares on your file server just protect the file shares. It is not required to protect the entire volumes that the shares reside on.

  • Hello,

     

    Thank you very much for reply. Our User's data are at the Shares. If I backup at the Volume level E:\, F:\, is it "End User Recovery" going to work?

     

    Thank you

    Yes, you can either protect a volume, or individual shares, and DPM will create EUR shares on the DPM server accordingly.  If you have local shadow copies enabled on the protected server, then DPM EUR will not work.  If you run "NET SHARE" on the DPM server, do you see the EUR shares listed ?

    Also - make sure SYSTEM account has at least read NTFS permissions on the root of the protected volume.
