Service Pack 1 for Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 provides continuous data protection for Windows application and file servers using seamlessly integrated disk and tape media and includes the following expanded capabilities:

  • Protection of Hyper-V™ virtualization platforms, including both Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V and the Microsoft Hyper-V Server, has been added to the existing set of protected workloads, building on the virtualization protection originally delivered for Virtual Server 2005.
  • Enhanced SQL Server 2008 protection, including the addition of new protection capabilities for mirrored databases, support for parallel backups of databases within a single instance, and the ability to move data from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 for migration scenarios.
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 receive index protection, significant catalog optimization, and support for mirrored content databases.
  • Added protection for Exchange Server 2007 Standby Cluster Replication (SCR), enabling a complete disaster recovery solution that leverages SCR failover alongside DPM point-in-time restores.

In addition to enhancing the protection of each of the core Microsoft application workloads, additional capabilities have also been introduced with the release of DPM 2007 SP1, such as:

  • Local Data Source Protection enabling the DPM 2007 SP1 server to act as a branch office server offering self-protecting File Services and Virtualization hosting within one platform.
  • Cross-Forest Protection allowing large enterprise customers with multiple Active Directory® forests to now have even more flexibility in their DPM deployments.
  • Provision for a Client DPML answers customer demand for a more cost-effective way to protect Windows XP and Windows Vista clients using the same DPM 2007 infrastructure that protects their servers
  • Disaster Recovery capabilities within DPM 2007 SP1 now include the ability to leverage a third-party vaulting partner via the cloud (SaaS)

All of this new functionality builds on the features released in the DPM 2007 ‘Rollup Update’ in June 2008, which provided protection of Windows Server 2008, including Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 core, Windows Server 2008 System State and BitLocker™ support – as well as new tape media capabilities around tape sharing and media library sharing. 

Between ‘Rollup Update’ and Service Pack 1, most of the core features of DPM 2007 have seen incremental capabilities or workload advancements which promises to keep Data Protection Manager on a trajectory toward improving how Microsoft customers protect and recover their Windows application and file servers with the Microsoft backup and recovery solution.

  • Hi Jason, can you elaborate on how the SCR support works?  I'm very curious about this and can't seem to find any info.



  • Well,I've learned another lesson from dpm, dont install the service pack 1.  I no longer can synchronize file data, which means i can not create recover points.  MS released a bogus SP1. The issue is with the developers according to my technician.  SQL DBs fine. Files fail.  The qc on this update was terrible.

  • MS provided me a Private HotFix which resolved my issues after installing the Service Pack 1.  

  • Hi,

    After installing SP1 (x86 version) on several customers, DPM started having VSS 207 errors. The solution was registering the vss_ps.dll

    regsvr32 %windir%\System32\vss_ps.dll



  • Hello folks, I hope you all had a wonderful Christimas and a happy new year! I know that is not a really

  • There's an issue with SP1 which can cause unresolvable inconsistencies, giving you an error #0x8007007b.  I had this on two of my servers in the same protection group.

    The problem is available in a private fix if you email Kapil dot Malhotra AT microsoft dot com ; VRMurthy AT microsoft dot com ; SDurge AT microsoft dot com.  Hopefully this will be a public hotfix very quickly (with good QA).

  • I meant the SOLUTION is available in a private fix.  They'll give you new versions of two files to replace: DPMRA.EXE and DsmFS.dll.

  • DPM no installed in windows 2008 domain controler...its is restricition very idiot!
