Configuring dpm 2010 for end user recovery on window server 2003
Posted on 2011-03-03
We are backing up a folder on a windows server 2003 x64 server with dpm2010. I have expanded the AD schema already and the protection group shows with no errors. Restore points are being created and are good. I cannot however find previous versions on the server when I look to restore files. They can be restored from the console but I don't see the previous versions on the server being backed up. The protection group is configured for servers, I setup a test computer with windows 7 and installed the client and was able to recover files with the group setup as client. I added my account explicitly to the administrators group on the file server. Is it possible to setup a file server so you can see previous versions on it as you would a client pc? I would like to allow support staff to be able to retrieve previous versions on the file server without giving them access to the server where the console is installed. Any help is greatly appreciated.
