Enabling Inactive Protection Group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    In DPM 2007, I've stopped a group protection (old data retained) which I though can be started/enabled again. In fact, all I got are just list of computers with its protection status = Inactive Replica and Tapes available. How can I restore the protection group and continue using the retained data?

    If it can't be restored in any way, how can I recreate and add the retained data?

  • All you have to do is modify/create a protection group and select the server/volumes you want to protect again.  DPM will detect that you already have inactive protection and re-use the replica/recovery point volumes. All data will be retained and protection will be resumed.
