Backup DPM Server with Third-Party Tools RRS feed

  • Question

  • Iam  currently planning to upgrade my DPM 2010 Server to DPM 2012 RC (and later to RTM of course). Iam trying to backup the DPM Server itself

    with the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager to get the Data to our Enterprise Tape Library. The problem is, the latest information i found about backing up the DPM Server with Third-Party Backup Tools is for DPM 2007. The folders have changed for DPM 2010 so iam not sure if i backup correctly.

    What i need are instructions on how to Backup DPM 2010 and DPM 2012 with another Backup Tool (including DPMDB AND the Storage Pools).

    Thank you

    Hi Ickis99,

    The process for backing up DPM 2007 with third party tools is the same with DPM 2010.

    Essentially backup the DPM database and the replicas.

    I am sure you know this but use DPMBackup.exe -db to protect the DPMDB and DPMBackup.exe –replica to backup the replicas. You would then use your third party tool (Tivoli) to backup the DPM Data Base and shadow copies (C:\Program files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes\ShadowCopy).

    The process is here:
