System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 (DPM) SP1 allows you to back up and restore SharePoint Search created by Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 (MOSS).
Protecting SharePoint Search and MOSS 2007 Shared Service Provider (SSP)
With SP1, DPM recognizes and lists the SharePoint SSP instance when creating a protection group for the SharePoint farm. The following procedure lists the steps to protect MOSS 2007 SSP using DPM 2007 SP1
How to protect MOSS 2007 SSP
Enable SPSearch protection on the protected computer using ConfigureSharePoint.exe.
Syntax: ConfigureSharePoint.exe [-EnableSPSearchProtection]
Use the Create New Protection Group wizard to protect the SSP which is now listed under the farm in which it was created.
|During the backup process, DPM pauses index crawling and all background processes. After the backup process is completed, DPM automatically resumes these processes. This does not affect the search capability.|
