DPM Backup process RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In my environment i am using DPM 2010 server to backup application servers like exchange,sharepoint and SQL servers.

    I am totally confused with the terms like express full backup,incremental backup,replica and recovery points.

    Express full backup also backs up the changed blocks from previous backup which is nothing but a incremental backup,
    then what makes the difference between these two terms.

    How the recovery points are created with the replica and synchronized data
    Explain me with some practical information or forward me to some links where i can find the practical information.

    Secondly i got some doubts regarding disk and tape based backup.

    Let us consider one example,i configured express full backup on first sunday - 10:00 am and daily synchronization will be at 11:00 am,3:00 pm and 6:00 pm and the retention range is 7 days in disk.
    In tape drive, i configured express full backup on first saturday at 9:00 pm and retention range is 2 weeks.
    If this is the case, whether all the one weeks data will be written to the tape or the first sunday data will be written to the tape.

    I am bit confused how to configure backup in both disk and tape drivers.

    Kindly help me out to achieve this target.

    Thanks in advance,


    Thanks Siva Aadhi-CIT. MCITP
