Microsoft Data Protection Manager 2007 horror stories
Posted on 2009-02-11
I am trying to "sell" DPM to my company's owners. Figure it would be better than a file level backup that an IT consultant setup to backup our Sharepoint and Exchange, along with other data.
Now, I've seen plenty of good about DPM, how it backs up things almost live, does bare metal restore, ends world hunger, hugs babies, etc. What I would like to know is horror stories. How did DPM screw you or anyone you know. How you couldn't restore your servers/desktops because DPM didn't do what it supposed to do.
Anyone feel like sharing?
