Updated: November 1, 2013
Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager
To use the Administrator Console, you must be logged on to the DPM server with a domain account that is a member of the local Administrators group.
|You can also add DPM Administrator Console as a snap-in to a custom Microsoft Management Console (MMC). DPM Administrator Console is listed in the MMC Add/Remove Snap-in menu as System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM).|
DPM Administrator Console runs locally on the DPM server, but you can access the console remotely by using a Remote Desktop connection.
To run DPM Administrator Console on the DPM server
On the Start menu, point to All Programs, point to System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM), and then click System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM).
Double-click the System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) icon on the desktop.
