DPM client missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my Windows 7 system, there is a DPM client GUI present in All Programs, but not present on any Server OS.  Is this by design?

  • I believe so yes. The idea I think is that while with server backups the sysadmin managing the protected server is the same person who's managing the DPM server, and likely has access to both. On the client side of things that might not be true, and the DPM Client allows users to not only have their local data backed up, but be able to restore it themselves without needing to get IT involved.

    It might be possible to install the client onto a protected server, but after having a look around online I can't see anything about it to be sure, so it might only be available when used on client based machines.
