Data Protection Manager Client RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello collegues,

    is there an option to install Data Protection Manager Client (not the agent itself) for DPM 2012/2012 R2? We need an option for clients to backup/restore their's data on demand with GUI interface. I saw such an application in DPM 2010, but can't see it in 2012 options fo installation.

    Regards

  • Hi,

    Please see the below links that may assist you.

    Note if needed:

    The administrator of a client computer must set the name of non-admin users who have to have permissions to perform end-user recovery of protected data of a client computer. You only need to add the registry entries on the client machines same as on DPM 2010.  The DPM 2012 DPMRA Agent should still honor the keys.

    To do this, the administrator must add the following registry key and value for each of these non-admin users. This is single key that contains a comma-separated list of client users. You do not have to add this key separately for each non-admin user. 

    Registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\Agent\ClientProtection

    REG_SZ: ClientOwners


    Value: Names of non-admin users. This should be a comma-separated list of user names without any leading or trailing spaces, as in the following example: domain1\user1,domain1\user2,domain1\user3 (and so on)

    Following blog provides detailed steps to configure DPM recovery permissions for users that are not members of the local administrators group:

  • Thanks.

    So there is no separate client installation, just the end-user recovery? Can it be used for stand-alone computers? We are using DPM for stand-alone servers, but this is something I haven't tried.
