Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager
To protect a SharePoint farm, you must perform the following steps:
Install DPM protection agents on all SharePoint servers that you plan to protect. For more information about how to install DPM agents, see Installing Protection Agents.
Enable SharePoint protection by configuring a front-end web server. For more information about how to configure front-end web servers, see Configuring the Front-end Web Server.
If you want to enable protection for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0/Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 Search, you must configure a front-end web server to enable Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 for Search protection.
On the DPM server, run the Create New Protection Group Wizard to protect the SharePoint data that exists under a front-end web server that is configured for protection. For more information about how to create a protection group, see DPM Help.
|DPM does not support protecting remote FILESTREAM. The FILESTREAM should be part of the database.|
