DPM 1801 question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have two questions:

    1) Is there anywy to backup windows 10 with all the Volume (C drive or D drive)  with DPM 1801? I cannot find any options for that.

    2) How can I access directly to the backup files of DPM? I mean how can I open the backuped files or volume on the DPM Pool?

    Any help?

    Thanks

  • Hello!

    Yes you can backup the C or D drive, is this on the DPM server itself or another protected client?

    When trying to backup these drives, how are you trying to perform this?

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Hi,

    You should be able to backup everything within your drives, see my picture from my lab below.

    To perform a complete backup of your Windows 10, you might want to perform System State backup (as in the picture above).

    You can not directly access your backups, you will have to first browse through the restore points of your files/folders that you want to restore, then actually restore it.

  • Hi

    Thanks for replay. I dont see on my group any "All Volume". If I select add new group and then select client, I can select include or exclude folder or files. Your picture is for the server or not?

    If I select protec the server option I see like your picture all Volume. Why can I not see all Volume if I select by add new group the client option?

    BR,

  • My picture is Server yes.

    If you choose Client, then you can Include the "System Drive", once you have created the group you should be able to select all the drives on your WIndows 10 computer within the Data Protection Manager Client.

    Yes that's what I meant.

    Have you successfully installed the DPM agent on your Windows 10 client? If yes it should be shown in the Management and under Production Servers.

    The Agents has been replaced with "Production Servers" in the newer DPM.

  • Thanks again for help.

    I have tried on the data protection manager client "Protected Items" to select the C and D drive, I get the message You dont have permission

    For my second question I did mean the "Agent" Option on the Administrator Console is missing. How can I install the Agent on the Client machine? I dont want to install manually.

  • As I mentioned the "Agents" tab has just changed its name to "Production Servers".

    You can view this blog post below regarding the permission issue on your Windows 10 client's Data Protection Manager Client.

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/dpm/2011/05/10/how-to-configure-the-dpm-client-to-allow-non-admin-users-to-perform-end-user-recovery-of-dpm-protected-data/

    See if that helps, let us know how it goes.

  • Ok I understand the "Agent" tab has been changed. 

    Regarding the Windows Client it seems the user dont has any permission to change the selected backup folder or drives. I dont know whether it is the right way to select the volume drive to backup. The user sholud not have any permission to change the selected backup folder or drive.

    Is there any other way to select the Volume from Admin Console?

  • You should be able to protect your drives by choosing Server, it worked for me in my lab.

    1)

    2)


    3)


    4)

    What version is your DPM agent on your Windows 10 client?

  • I have checked again and I can select the volume if I select after installing Agent.

    I have the Agent Version

    I selected C:\ and System State to backup

    Why should I do "Create Recovery Point" manually? If do that I get the message it should run Consistency check and I runt it and get "Replica is inconsistent"

    How long take it to "Replica inconsistent, verification in progress"?

    It should do automatically or not?

  • Now it looks better indeed, you can manually create recovery points by right clicking the object you want to create a recovery point for (for example C:\) and then select Create recovery point or DPM will schedule this automatically.

    To check your automatic recovery point schedule, right click on the Protection Group 1 and then select Modify Protection Group.

     then click Next

    then select Next again:

    And now under File recovery points you can select Modify to configure at what times you want to create recovery points automatically.

    For the inconsistency, you can always perform a manual consistency check, if it fails often you can view more detailed information about these errors if you go to the Monitoring pane on the left side and then you should be able to see your errors & warnings.

    Also make sure you have enough disk space, a System State backs up operating system files and can take up some disk space.

  • Hi,

    I have added to windows 10 client machine to my DPM and install agent.

    I have created a group and choose C:\ for backup. My DPM server show me on every machine the "replica inconsistent verification in progress"

    Any Idea?

  • Go to Monitoring and check your Critical & Warning alerts, once you select one alert you will see more detailed information, post the errors/warnings here (text or screenshot).
