Download details: DPM 2010 PowerShell Script – Hyper-V Auto-Protection


In any virtualized environment, adding new VMs is a frequent operation. While backup administrators can protect an entire Hyper-V host using the DPM Management Console, the protection group had to be modified manually to include the new virtual machines that have come up on the Hyper-V host. These scripts are expected to work with DPM 2010 Beta. By using them, you should be able to quickly put together a script that can enable the auto protection of your hyper-v hosts. Note: These scripts work on an existing protection group and do not create a fresh protection group. The attached scripts automate the task of adding any new virtual machines recognized in the Hyper-V hosts protected by the DPM server into existing protection groups. There are different scripts for Hyper-V clusters (AddNewClusteredVM.ps1) and standalone Hyper-V hosts (AddNewStandAloneVM.ps1). You would still use the script for standalone servers to automatically protect the non-clustered virtual machines of any Hyper-V host that is part of a cluster.

All Backed Up : Try DPM 2007 SP1 – with just a web browser


We are really excited to have recently launched 3 TechNet Virtual Labs (vLabs) on DPM 2007 SP1. 

Virtual Labs is a very cool offering where we’ve taken the same Hands-On Labs that you could try at Tech-Ed, IT Forum, Microsoft Management Summit or any other Microsoft conference – and we’ve hosted them on a monster virtualization server farm.  The result is that you can open your browser, start a lab, and your very own lab environment will spin up for about 3 hours.  Go through the student manual – or just play with the features that you want to learn about.  At the end of your time, the images reset (yes, there is a clock in the window).

System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 Hotfix Rollup Package available

Issues Fixed:

  • The DPMRA service on the DPM Server occasionally crashes, marking replicas as inconsistent (in this case the system event log may contain entries stating that the DPMRA service terminated unexpectedly)
  • Missing calculate link option in the Data Size column when creating a protection group and selecting a volume to protect (when directories are deselected under that volume)
  • When configuring secondary protection for an item on a secondary DPM server, some cases an error comes up when stating “This item is not protectable because some prerequisite software is missing. Ensure that all prerequisite software is installed and then protect this item”, even if the item is already successfully protected on the primary DPM Server.
  • Inability to protect data local to the DPM server
