  • Hi!

    A DPM administrator can be a local administrator or domain user/administrator depending where the DPM database is located. You will need access to the DPM database & the DPM server to be able run the DPM console/DPM powershell.

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Can you give me examples when user needs Domain to perform the DPM mailbox restore?

    and when user needs local admin rights?

    thanks for your help.

  • I'm afraid I don't know of any automated processes like this.

    If a user want's to be able to restore his mailbox he will need permissions to the DPM.

    - If the DPM server has its SQL database locally, local administrators on the DPM servers can perform DPM mailbox restore (only if the local administrators have access to the DPM SQL database)

    - If the DPM server has its SQL database remotely, domain users that have been assigned in the DPM SQL database will have access to perform a mailbox restore.

    You can install the DPM management shell on remote computers, see more here.

  • Hi Leon,

    If the if the DPM server needing to access the sql servers and other backup DPM servers are remote then would setting up a local admin account to enable access to all of them bypass the need to have Domain access rights to access them?

  • Sorry I'm having some troubles to understand, where do you have your DPM SQL database located?
    On the DPM server or on a remote server?

  • SQL databases located on remote server.

    So by setting up a domain account with local admin rights will allow to perform DPM right?

  • You can give local administrator for a domain account on the DPM server, but you will also have to give permissions for the DPM SQL database (inside the DPM database) to be able to manage DPM.
