  • Praveen;

    I am using 2012RC and love the changes from 2010.  I am trying to do a manual replica using the provided instructions in help file.  The PS is connected via VPN across a WAN.  I would really like to be able to do BMR, however, as you know it will only let me create "system state" recover points.  An even bigger problem is trying to get the replica on the DPM server manually.  After 5 days across the WAN was only able to get one Gb.  I did:

    From an administrative command prompt on the PS, type: wbadmin.exe start backup -allcritical -quiet -backuptarget:\\server\bmrshare

    on the PS to a share on an external drive connected to the PS.  I now have that external connected to the DPM server.  In following these instructions:

    To copy data files from a protected computer to the DPM server

    1. <content xmlns="">In the Protection view, select the protected data and then locate the Replica path in the Details pane. </content>
    2. <content xmlns="">In the Details pane, select the replica path and copy it into a text editor such as Notepad. The path will look like the following:

      <Drive:>\DPM\DPM\Volumes\Replica\\File System\D-87a82ad4-f9d2-11d9-b758-000d561ae74f\e55173e1-0b7a-4fa4-b4d1-387ac2b016b8\3ed60b1c-dcf8-442e-b441-d771a3d7f014\Users

      You cannot change the directory to this path in Windows Explorer because it is too large.

    3. <content xmlns="">To access the Users folder, perform the following steps:
      1. At the command prompt, type mountvol and then press Enter.
      2. From the list of mounted volumes, pick the volume that corresponds to the appropriate path. The path will look like the following:

            <Drive:>\DPM\DPM\Volumes\Replica\\File System\D-87a82ad4-f9d2-11d9-b758-000d561ae74f\
      3. Type the following to mount the volume to a drive letter:
        mountvol k:\ \\?\Volume{a2072784-7573-4dce-a7e9-26713fd12697}\
      4. Click Start, double-click My Computer, and on the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
      5. In the Folder Options dialog box, on the View tab, in the Advanced settings box, under Hidden files and folders, clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) option, click Yes to confirm that you want to display the files, and then click OK.
        Now you can browse to view the entire path from step 3 in Windows Explorer.
    4. <content xmlns="">Manually copy the data to the Users folder under the drive letter you used to map the volume (K:\ in this example). Overwrite any data in the Users folder.</content>
    5. <// xmlns="">After you copy the data to the replica location, perform a synchronization with consistency check. Protection will start after the synchronization with consistency check has successfully completed.<///>

    When I mount the volume it looks like this: 

    <Drive:>\DPM\DPM\Volumes\Replica\File System\D-87a82ad4-f9d2-11d9-b758-000d561ae74f\e55173e1-0b7a-4fa4-b4d1-387ac2b016b8\3ed60b1c-dcf8-442e-b441-d771a3d7f014\Full

    Notice there is NO FQDN and it is "Full" instead of "User"

    Then at step 4. manually copy WHAT data??  The ext. drive has a folder structure of typical Windows Server Backup which is:

    Backup 2012-0-20 114519




    Any help would be GREAT
