Data Protection Manager

We are very excited to announce that the ‘Rollup Update’ for System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 is now available.

There are new workloads to be protected, as well as new features in this update, including:

Windows Server 2008 support

Run DPM2007 Server on a Windows Server 2008 platform

Protect Windows Server 2008 – including Core systems

Protect Windows Server 2008 System State

Use of RemoteApp to enable DPM administration remotely

While DPM2007 has actually been protecting “Longhorn” since Beta 3, this makes Windows Server 2008 a supported protected workload

Protect SQL Server 2008

Including the ability to restore SQL Server 2005 databases to a SQL Server 2008 server for test migrations and ensuring that after you have updated your environment to SQL Server 2008, you will still be able to recover older SQL 2005 databases, when needed.

While DPM has actually been protecting "Katmai" since customer technology preview 4 (July 2007), this makes SQL Server 2008 a supported protect-able workload

Protect clustered Virtual Server 2005 R2 hosts

DPM 2007 could already protect clustered-Exchange, clustered-SQL Server and clustered-File Services … but clustered virtualization hosts was not initially available in DPM 2007 RTM.  Now for those environments that understand that as they rely on virtualization, the virtualization host needs to be highly available – those platforms are protected by DPM, as well.

New media capabilitiesadded based on feedback from some of our early DPM enterprise customers

Tape media sharing – so that multiple protection groups with similar tape retention periods can now share tapes

Tape library sharing – multiple DPM servers can now share your enterprise tape library silo’s.  This one has been running in MSIT for a while.

 

For more details on what is included in the DPM 2007 “Rollup Update” or in the upcoming Service Pack 1, please check out:

TechNet webcast on “What is coming next for DPM 2007” from April 23, 2008

 

The DPM 2007 Rollup Update is now available via Microsoft Update, if your DPM server is opt’ed in for updates … or it is downloadable from:

Data Protection Manager 2007 - Rollup Update - x86

Data Protection Manager 2007 - Rollup Update - x64

 

Microsoft is committed to continuing to make DPM2007 an ideal solution for protecting and recovering your Windows infrastructure.  So, stay tuned as we get ready to launch the beta for DPM 2007 Service Pack 1, targeted for later this Summer – including the updates listed above, PLUS protection for Hyper-V, more capabilities around SQL Server databases, new features for protecting SharePoint farms and some other features that we are keeping a surprise for now.  As always, you’ll hear about them first here – on the DPM blog site.

  • The feature pack that is supposed to fix quite a few issues was released on the 1st July. I seemed to

  • So, how do I install this on a Server 2008 Enterprise 64 bit system?  The install continues to fail and the native backup is worthless with Exchange and Sharepoint.

  • We're actually running into an odd problem updating the feature pack on one of our DPM servers.

    I get an error that the update failed to complete, and it rolls back.

    When we look at the DataProtectionManager-KB949779.log file, we see the following:

    Anyone have a suggestion on this one?

  • I am attempting to install the feature pack on a 2008 Enterprise server (x64).  I am getting the exact same error message as ajhicks.

    Did you ever find a resolution to this?

  • I ran into this problem this morning. In the setup log this event occurs:

    _PreserveRegistrySettings.97DDF5B3_3770_4C3E_8673_52BD081E1EFD. Return value 3.

    Return value 3 being a fatal error. Using Process Monitor one failed registry access stood out; an attempt to read an InstallPath key at this location:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\Setup\

    I created a string key called InstallPath and populated it with the path to the DPM installation (C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM in my case), and the patch went through fine.

  • After applying SP1 when a backup job fails it is no longer displayed in DPM Monitoring - Alert Tab (the backup job is to tape)

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

  • I'm also seeing the same issue after SP1 for DPM 2007 is installed -- the tape backup job fails and is no longer displayed in the DPM Monitoring Alert Tab.

    Any ideas?
