Retention range option in the Create New Protection Group accepts number beyond mentioned 64 according to Microsoft... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all;

    When creating a new protection group, on the Specify Short-Term Goals, we can select any number beyond 64 days and the wizard finished without any alerts. According to Microsoft the valid number is 1 through 64!


    Can anyone explain this situation?

  • What is the data source that you are protecting? The 64 recovery point limit only affects File Data in DPM in a trusted domain. Application data such as Exchange, SharePoint, SQL, etc has a valid recovery point limit in DPM 2010 of 448 recovery points.
