Modifying a DPM Role

Updated: July 16, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 includes the DPM Self Service Recovery Configuration Tool for SQL Server (SSRCT). You can use this tool to create DPM roles, which enable SQL Server database owners to recover their databases without the need for intervention by a DPM administrator. You can configure a DPM role to control what users can recover and to which instances of SQL Server users can recover databases. Users can recover a database by using the DPM Self-Service Recovery Tool (SSRT) for SQL Server. For more information about the SSRT, see DPM 2010 Self-Service Recovery Tool.

You can also use cmdlets in DPM Management Shell to create DPM roles.

To create a DPM role, you must specify the following settings:

  • Security groups: One or more individual users or security groups that contain the users for whom you want to enable self-service recovery of SQL Server databases.

  • Recovery items: Instances of SQL Server and SQL Server databases that are currently protected by DPM for which you want to enable self-service recovery by users.

  • Recovery targets: Instances of SQL Server that users can use as targeted locations to recover databases during self-service recovery.

To modify a DPM role by using the DPM Self-Service Recovery Configuration Tool

  1. In DPM Administrator Console, click the Protection tab, and then, in the Actions pane, click Configure self service recovery for SQL Server.

    The DPM Self-Service Recovery Configuration Tool for SQL Server opens.

  2. To modify a DPM role, select the role, and then click Modify.

  3. The Modify Role Wizard opens and guides you through the following pages to modify a DPM role:

    1. Getting Started

    2. Specify Security Groups

    3. Specify Recovery Items

    4. Specify Recovery Target Locations

    5. Summary

To rename a DPM role by using DPM Management Shell cmdlets

  1. Open the DPM role for editing.

    Get-DPMRole -Name <DMPRoleName> -DPMServerName <DPMServerName> -Editable <SwitchParameter> [<CommonParameters>]
    
  2. Rename the DPM role.

    Rename-DPMRole -Name <NewDMPRoleName> [-Description <DPMRoleDescription>] -DpmRole <DPMRoleName> [<CommonParameters>]
    
    noteNote
    Users in the specified security groups can recover their SQL Server databases regardless of the database permissions configured on the instances of SQL Server.

  3. Save the modified DPM role.

    Set-DPMRole -DpmRole <DMPRoleName> -Confirm [<CommonParameters>]
    

To remove a recovery target location

  1. Open the DPM role for editing.

    Get-DPMRole -Name <DMPRoleName> -DPMServerName <DPMServerName> -Editable <SwitchParameter> [<CommonParameters>]
    
    noteNote
    The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is required when removing a targeted location.

  2. Remove the recovery target location.

    Remove-DPMRole -DpmRole <DMPRoleName> [<CommonParameters>]
    
  3. Save the modified DPM role.

    Set-DPMRole -DpmRole <DMPRoleName> -Confirm [<CommonParameters>]
