DPM 2010 “fire and forget” experience

For systems administrators working a 25 hour day…

Its been a bit hectic these last two weeks, none the less, I managed to test one of the DPM 2010 features, the “fire and forget” experience.

I confirmed the test servers are still backing up, that Exchange mailboxes, SQL databases and Virtual machines still recover.  I can’t say I like it, I’d rather something went wrong.

    Ya know, if you really want something to play with in your spare time, I can probably find an old copy of the first beta of DPM 2006. It is almost 6 years old, but it does not include the “Fire and Forget” feature.

    In the mean time, since you are backing up SQL, try out the new SQL Self-Service Restore utility. It is one of my other favorite new features.

    Cheers,

    Even if something had gone wrong– sounds like the experience is still a good one! See this article: http://www.infoworld.com/d/windows/making-the-most-microsoft-support-573?page=0,0
