dpm2012-turned off for DPM recovery point backup RRS feed

Answers

  • You will face a challange regarding question nr 2 if you don't use a Virtual Tape Library (VTL) of actual tapes.

    A Express-full is a combo of Sync and recovery Point Creation, DPM will not be able to create different "versions" on disks like other 3rd party vendors.

    The retention time will determine for how long the protected data will stay online on the disk. The number of recovery Points is also important since you don't want a large amount of time between your recovery ponts since this will cause a possible latencey in your restore operation.

    If you got further questions you are welcome to open a new thred.

  • Hi,

    Regarding your question of circular logging its good to turn it of: http://blogs.technet.com/b/dpm/archive/2010/09/02/dpm-backup-of-exchange-databases-can-fail-because-of-exchange-circular-logging.aspx

    I would recomend you to use a VTL for longer archiving since the limitation lies in the Exchange VSS. Here is a link that you could have a look at: http://www.cristalink.com/fs/
