Create Recovery Point for every datasource on a server RRS feed

  • Question

  • DPM 2010. I have about a dozen Protection Groups and several datasources within each group. I have a need to create a recovery point of every datasource (prior to a major system change) but the only way I can see to do this in the Console is by going through and creating a recovery point for each datasource individually. It won't work if I select multiple datasources and choose create recovery point. That would take quite awhile to do that for every datasource. Is there a way to script this to work?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can try powershell, have a look at this blog:
