  1. Intelligence for backup extended to include Data Protection Manager to Azure

    We would like to be able to have good summary information around backup where we don't have an Azure only solution. In a case where we are seeing a lot of growth around IaaS workloads that are not in Azure but are Windows server based where we use a lot of System Center for Monitoring, Management and Backup. It would be great to consolidate backup information from multiple customers where we manage their environment and need to meet in this case backup SLA's using DPM either D2D2VTL or D2D2Azure. Having a backup summary would allow at a glance to show…

  2. Check if The Dpm CPWrapper Service is running when upgrading a DPM Agent and start it after the upgrade

    Hi,

    After the installation of an Update Rollup for DPM for Protected Servers that use Certificate Based Authentication the "DPM CPWrapper Service" is always disabled. The is also the case on the DPM Server it self. It would be nice if the installation package could check if the service is running and, if so, to start it again after the upgrade.

  6. Option to Move Inactive Replicas to Azure

    Most of the time your capacity planning w.r.t storage goes out of window while planning backup storage, reason unforeseen growth. Saving every byte of storage become so critical to keep backups falling apart. Inactive Replica space is something which can provide some breathing space. Depending on retention schedules they can potentially occupy the space for months. While moving the Datasource from protection group to Inactive state, It would be great to have an option by which it will allow to move these Inactive Replicas(cold Data) over to Azure. saving costly on-prem storage.

  8. better testing of dpm updates and redo how updates are installed.

    Updates almost always break dpm. I cringe evey time we apply dpm updates. The process should be revamped.

  9. Use Azure Vault as only repository

    In this moment is possible use Azure Vault, into PG, only if I have a local repository. Now that DPM is supported on Azure I could choose, during planning, if use the local storage or Azure Vault but if the application request local storage is not good.

  11. Correct incorrect French Translation: Long term Tape Goal frequency is labelled as "Quotidiennement" / Daily, "Hebdomadaire" / Weekly, "Dt

    Correct translation for Long Term Tape Frequency backup: There are 4 default options:
    "Quotidiennement" aka Daily
    "Hebdomadaire" aka Weekly
    "Deux fois par semaine" which means "twice a week" and is in fact "every 2 weeks" which can be translated to "toutes les deux semaines"
    "Mensuel" aka Monthly.

  12. Fix console crashing on loss of connection to remote DPM server

    If you use the DPM Administrator Console to administer remote DPM servers, if the connection to the remote DPM server is interrupted for whatever reason (network connectivity drop out, service crash and restart, DPM host computer restarts, etc.), the connected remote DPM console will crash spectacularly, report the bug to Microsoft then eventually terminate.

    Please improve the console so it can be more resilient to communications failures between the console and the DPM computer. A loss of connection should not result in a catastrophic failure, rather, it should indicate a connection has been lost then offer to reconnect,

    This problem…

  13. DPM 2016 Backup Items in Azure Portal

    Right now DPM 1807 and 2019 will show a list of available Online Recovery points under Backup Items in the Recovery Services Valt in the Azure portal. For some reason DPM 2016 even with UR7 is excluded, even though you see the DPM server registered with the vault. Having visibility of what online recovery points DPM 2016 has created gives a simplified reporting mechanism for auditors, etc. when it is necessary to confirm that recovery points actually exist offsite.

  14. SCDpm use azure blob as "tape libray"

    Allow SCDPM (On-Premises) to azure blob storage for the long term jobs.

    For long time jobs using azure blob storage to store the data like a "tape library" can be more flexible than use a "real / virtual" tape libray
