  1. Service Security Identifiers (SID’s) to grant access for the service running SQL server,

    SQL already uses Service Security Identifiers (SID’s) to grant access for the service running SQL server, to the SQL instance. Like setting up SCOM to use restricted access via NT SERVICE\HealthService. Could the SCDPM services be reconfigured to a user account with permissions more in line with SQL role db_backupoperator. Thus not granting NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM users access to all data!! As DBA's we are not comfortable with that level of access (sysadmin) being granted to non-DBA's

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. Exclude disks for VM-level backups - VMWare

    Request the ability to exclude entire disks from a VM level backup. An example would be a VM level backup of a SQL server but we want to exclude the database dump volume since that contains redundant data.

    Another example is a file server that has multiple large historical drives (static data) and one active drive receiving new data. The fileserver could be protected at the VM level to target the active data but ignore the drives with static data.

    This entry is specific to VMWare VM protection.

  9. Fix custom tape label bug

    In DPM, when customising tape backups, you used to be able to set the label for the tape. This was great. Since 1807, this functionality is completely broken. Custom tape labels that existed prior to upgrading retain their custom tape label but you cannot change or set new tape labels for protection groups.

    Please fix this bug.

  12. Remove Tape Library, Tape Drives

    We decomssioned our old tape library. Replaced it by a new one (other vendor). However now we have two libraries.

    It is possible to disable the old one, but that still generates errors in the event log at SCOM can/will pick up and triggers an alert.

  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.
