  2. tape

    If a tape drive (such as LTO4 and newer drives) natively supports hardware encryption make use of that instead of relying on encryption from within in DPM. Same with Compression, make use of hardware capabilities. That way both encryption and compression can be used together.

  3. Find which tapes were written last weekend so we can send them offsite.

    We need to find which tapes were written last weekend so that we can send them offsite on Mondays.
    I really wish DPM would let us run a report which displays barcodes of the tapes which were written over the last weekend.

    Right now, we can run a custom filter on the jobs and then look through the output of all the jobs which ran and see which tape was used. This is a pretty tedious , manual process.

  4. Manage StorSimple Backup and Recovery with DPM

    StorSimple has lacked a good way to manage local and cloud snapshots in the 7000 series. I'm not sure how much this has been improved in the 8000 series. I would like to be able to manage the StorSimple backups with DPM. Also it would be nice if this would enable the ability for clients to use the built in previous version recovery that is missing with StorSimple.

  5. StorSimple

    DPM and StorSimple

    Maybe it is possible to find a way how to use the StorSmple appliance as target for disk backups or as virtual tape library.

  6. Update DPM Management Packs for SCOM

    The current DPM MP for SCOM could be done better and should be improved. Please remove the console tasks targeted to all alerts. That is messing up every customers task pane.

  7. using DPM in azure to backup On-premises servers

    Hi, i have several SMALL site, each of which contains servers that needs to be backed up. is it possible to install/use an already installed DPM server on Azure, and simply install agents (or whatever they are called) on each on-premises server to have them backup their information to Azure cloud?
    thank you,
    Gil

  8. Allow a Secondary server to backup a Primary server with a different SCDPM version

    For example if the Secondary server was running DPM 2012 R2 allow this to backup a primary server running DPM 2012 SP1.

  9. Export/import tape information in DPMDB

    Over time may be necessary to replace a DPM system with one or more new DPM systems. An in-place upgrade is not always the best choice as well as reinstalling a new DPM system starting from an old DPMDB.
    In all these situations we have to deal with a decision: keep the old DPM system to have a track of the tapes retention and content or create a static report of this information with a PS script.
    I think that a tape information export/import would be useful.

  10. DPM Bare Metal Backups for Windows 7 Clients

    To complement our investment in System Centre and DPM please add support for bare metal protection for Windows 7 client Operating systems the same as we have in Windows Server. We currently have to use a separate backup product to backup Windows 7 systems. Our Windows 7 systems are going to be around for a long time to come as we have just completed an XP migration to Win7 image.

  11. Report to list Tape Contents and Barcode

    Report to show barcode of tape and the contents stored on that tape. Should be able to select which tapes a user wants to report on. Right now when we have to remove stapes to store offsite, we have to view each tape contents and manually make a note along with the barcode. This information is then sent with the tapes to offsite. Going through this process is time consuming.

  12. Continue Tape backups post minor issues similar to Disk 2 Disk backup

    Currently during D2D backups if we encounter some failures like a file being corrupted DPM will continue the backup skipping the corrupted file and mention the details in a warning message. The request is to extend this feature for tape backups as well.

  13. dpm sql server backups

    Dpm will auto protect databases on a sql server, but when a database is removed manual intervention is required. Please add functionality to un protect deleted databases.

  14. incremental Backup to Tape

    Incremental Backup to Tape

    Some of my customers have security rules which state daily Tape Backup und unfortunately deny cloud backups. Would be nice to have the ability that not every time a tape backup is a full backup.

  16. Copy from Cloud to Tape/Disk

    As same as IaaS, Backup as a Service should allow customer to move backup to cloud and move back without any limitation.

  18. Add Online/Azure Recovery Points visibility to SSRT (SQL Self-service Recovery Tool)

    Currently DPM's SSRT for SQL Admins can only view the local Recovery Points. We need to allow our SQL Admins to restore the Azure Recovery Points as well.

  19. Tape: multiple Long-term jobs on one tape

    One of my customers uses a tape library (without moving tapes offsite) and he needs to put multiple long-term backup jobs on one tape as data written on one day is only 1/4 of the capacity of the tape. So he wonders why he can't put 4 long-term joibs on one tape.

    Please enable that multiple long-term tape backups can be written on one tape.

    Thanks.
