DPM 2016 - Item Level recovery from Online Recovery Point RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are trying to determine how to perform an item level recovery from an online recovery point.  We are able to do item level recovery from any recovery point that is listed on Disk, but we are unable to do this from an online recovery point.  Can someone please help us perform the item level restore?  We should not have to restore the entire VM should we?

    We are backing up a Windows Server 2016 VM which is running on Hyper-V 2016.  We retain 7 days of storage on disk and our online retention policy is configured as follows:

    Daily - 14 days

    Weekly 12 Weeks

    Monthly - 12 months

    Yearly - 5 years.

  • Hello,

    I cannot find any official documentation about this, but as far as I know Hyper-V Item Level Recovery is currently not supported for online backups in DPM, same as Tape backups. 

    This means that you will need to restore the whole VM from online backup.
