New Options In Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 RC…

Exchange admins who are/were backing up Exchange 2007 servers using Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 should have come across the issues of expanding the volumes used for backups manually and to perform a consistency check manually whenever the data was in an inconsistent state.

Guess what? Those two issues have been fixed in DPM 2010 RC. The two options are enabled by default when you create a protection group in DPM 2010.

1. Automatically grow the volume when more disk space is required for protecting the items in the protection group.

Grow Volume

2. Run a consistency check if the replica become inconsistent.

Consistency Check

A welcome fix indeed!

  1. Hey guys,

    I know it is kinda weird request, but is it possible to download RC right now. I can't see it on Microsoft's website and I really need it for an upgrade.

    Any help will be appreciated.


  2. Hi Mike,

    I agree. But, it is better than manually changing these options. If there is a good monitoring software, it should be ok.

  3. I do LIKE this option, but I can see it becoming a really bad thing if the program decides to bug out and start eating up resources..That just seems like a disaster waiting to happen.That said, for people in charge of their companies data protection, this is definitely an option they will use at some point.
