Recovering databases from SSMS from backups by DPM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Is it possible to use SQL Server Management Studio to recover databases backed up by DPM?  All the backups files for the SQL Server 2008R2 databases still show up in SSMS just like a native SQL Server backup but in attempting to do an actual recovery in SSMS I get the following error-

    System.Data.SqlClient.SQLError:  Cannot open backupdevice{xxx}

    Operating system cannot find the file specified.). (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

    What is DPM's best practicce in configuring this to work?  It seems like it should be possible.

    Thanks in advance.
