Backup Capability of SCDPM 2012 to SCOM 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I have a SCDPM 2012 and SCOM 2012 in place, I used to backup SCOM 2012 DB using SCDPM 2012.

    However I was wondering if the SCDPM 2012 able to recover custom MP with override in SCOM? also do it able to restore the SCOM SQL DB back in place without encryption key?

    Please enlighten me. Thanks.

  • Hi Ralphkoh,

    The Custom MP with overrides are in fact not stored in the dbase but they are seperate management packs stored on the server. To safeguard those I advise you to run my script to export them on a daily basis to a folder and then make a file backup of that location: http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/SCOM2012-Backup-unsealed-fc6fb9b5

    As of your question for the encryption key.

    The very nice thing in SCOM 2012 is that the RMS has been eliminated. The encryption key is now stored on all management servers in you environment and even a disaster recovery without the encryption key works if you reinstall the server.

    So no worries on that part but DO save your unsealed management packs to safeguard your SCOM environment.


    It's doing common things uncommonly well that brings succes.
