Client computer protection synchronization schedule RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we back up some Windows 7 clients (notebooks) with DPM. Recovery point schedule is set to 13:00. The synchronization runs every morning after the computer is connected to corporate network. As this slows down the box pretty much, we'd like to run the sync just before creation of the recovery point. BUT, this is not possible in DPM GUI like it is with servers. Any suggestions?

  • Hi,


    There is not a way to tell a client to only synchronize at a certain time of day, just how often, so if the client is off the network when a synch is due, of course that will be skipped, so the next time it's connected to the network, it's automatically going to due the synch at that time.

    Best you can do is synch more often so there is less changed data to bring over when it does attach to the network. This is because it was trasferring changes more frequently when it was attached prior to being disconnected, so only data changed while diconnected needs to be synched.
