DPM 2010 : Get-Datasource properties meaning question RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello, i am currently working on a monitoring script that queries one time per day the overall status of DPM backup operations :

    I wonder what is the meaning of some properties (i dumped all properties for the datasource and recoverypoint objects for all ProductionServers)

    the cmdlet I use is : Get-Datasource -ProductionServer $protectedserver -Inquire | where {$_.ProtectionGroupName -ne $null}

    • Protected (seems the most relevant to use) = should be true
    • State = should be "valid" i presume
    • Alert = should be $null

    The more "mystical" fields where i do not know what DPM 2010 is referring to are :

    • CurrentProtectionState = UserInputPending (what user input, where ?)
    • CurrentlyProtected = False (it reports false for system protection backups)

    Do you know if these values are deprecated / meaningful ?

  • I am currently seeing the CurrentProtectionState = UserInputPending on a new exchange database that I added.  Do you know how this property can be changed or the CurrentlyProtected = False can be change to True using powershell?
