  1. Restore VMware vm to alternate location

    Please provide the capability to choose the vSwitch or DVS in VMware when restoring a VMware VM to an alternate location.
    We cannot restore VMware VMs to an alternate location when using vCenter only communication with DPM. The VMware restore fails to create the VM in an alternate VMware cluster and VMware returns an error indicating the creation of the DVS fails as the DVS is different in the alternate VMware cluster.

  2. Recover indiviudal files from long term VM backup to azure

    It would be great when using Azure Backup Server on premises or DPM backup to Azure to be able to restore individual files from within a VM backup (both Hyhper-V and VMware) in the same way you can for short term backup. At the moment if I want to restore one file from a VM backed up to Azure I have to restore the entire VM.

  3. Clean up VMware snapshots when VM backup fails in DPM

    Currently when a backup of a VMware VM is interrupted due to the DPM disk filling up or the VMware server rebooting during backup causing the VMware level backup of a VM to fail - the snapshot is left on the VMware VM and requires manual consolidation. Could the DPM backup send a snapshot cleanup command even in the event the backup fails

  5. DPM moved to a new vault - do I need the original vault for full restore?

    If I move a DPM server to a different vault, will it move the replica along with any recovery points? Maybe I'm a little unclear as to how the Azure Recovery vault works with DPM, but I want to make sure I can fully restore any VMs and/or files from the new vault without needing the original vault, or the local DPM server in case of DR.

  6. Involving Azure backup data uploaded by DPM to backup report using Power BI.

    We have several on-premise DPM servers where the online backup is activated therefore the backup data is uploaded to the Azure monthly basis. We are testing Power BI to generate Azure backup report, but unfortunately, the backup reports using PowerBI for Data Protection Manager aren't supported at this time.

  8. DPM current branch updates available and installed via console

    Making current branch updates available for download and install via the DPM console is something that would make the management of current branch updates easier. The SCCM team do a great job of in-console updates and a similar method would be great
