By monitoring alerts, you can monitor data protection activity, job status, and error conditions in Data Protection Manager (DPM) and take action, when necessary, to resolve issues. In DPM, alerts are displayed in the Monitoring task area on the Alerts tab.
As a general rule, you should start troubleshooting an issue in DPM by reviewing the relevant alert details. For detailed information about a specific job related to the issue, review the job details.
If you have multiple DPM servers, you can monitor them centrally in Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) by deploying the DPM Management Pack. For information about the DPM Management Pack, see the DPM Management Pack Guide on the MOM 2005 Product Documentation Web page.
