DPM–Protection of SharePoint with DPM 2010

One of the common misunderstood made by DPM Backup Administrator is the sequence to be carried out in order to protect the SharePoint Server Farm.

  • First, install the DPM agent on the SharePoint Web-Front End (WFE) Servers.
  • Second, install the DPM agents on the Back End SQL servers.
  • Thirdly, the SharePoint VSS must be enable.  The command to execute is with the switch as follow :
    • ConfigureSharepoint.exe –EnableSharePointProtection
    Note : – you must run the command line above in administrator mode in the SharePoint server.  You may need to change the directory to execute the command which is : C:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\bin>

Thank you and hope this helps you.

DPM–Problem with SQL Synchronization in DPM 2010


One of the interesting fact that I found in using DPM backing up SQL.

One database had a recovery model FULL couldn’t synchronize the log files content to DPM.

In the SQL server side, after going through the event viewer, realised that the event ID 5, Active Server Pages.  This error occurred at the same time as the backup.

Resolution : re-register the asp.dll from an elevated command prompt.


Thanks to Robert Hedblom for his sharing.

Hope this helps you as it helps me.
