DPM 2010 Item level restore for SharePoint is really slow!!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tested the item level recovery option today for a 1.6 MB document.

    I started the process at 7:27 AM and I could see that by 7:32 all the 25 GB of data was transferred successfully to the temporary server. After that the status bar just kept moving back and forth back and forth for next 15 minutes. and finally the item was successfully recovered at 7:50 AM.

     

    This is really slow.... Is there any way to know what was the server doing post the entire 25 GB of data was transferred (here the status bar was just moving front and back without really giving any meaningful information as to what is going on?).

  • Hello,

    I'm not sure if you can "see" what's happening, but here is what is happening in the back:

    A DPM file-item restore is a SharePoint 2010 Granular Restore / Unattached Content Database recovery.  So what DPM does (in short)

    * Locates the recovery point of the content database

    * Restores the entire database (that's the file transfer that you see)

    * Exports the file from a so called unattached content database (the CMP thingie)

    * Re-imports it in the live site

    So the long time that you see are the last two steps

    Hope it clarifies a bit

    Cheers,
