Back up and restore SharePoint 2013 with DPM 2012


  • I'm working on a SharePoint 2013 farm with 4+ web/app servers (VMware virtualised) and physical SQL Server 2012 database server with 3TBs of content

    If one of the virtual servers becomes corrupted (OS) can I use DPM to recover this server from backup (bare metal restore) or can I only restore the whole farm in its entirety

    Also can I backup/restore only the SharePoint  farm configuration part (config database, iis) - or is a full farm restore the only option to recover from farm/config database corruption?
