Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

The Create New Protection Group Wizard guides you through the process of protecting your data both for servers and client computers. You can create two kinds of protections groups:

  • Servers. Select this option for backing up file servers and application servers.

  • Clients. Select this option for backing up data from laptops and desktops.

Protection group creation involves making a series of decisions about how you want to configure the group. These decisions are provided in the following table:

 

Server Clients
  • Selecting the data you want to protect.

  • Selecting the kind of protection method that you want.

  • Specifying your recovery goals.

  • Allocating space on the storage pool for replicas and recovery points.

  • Specifying library and tape details.

  • Specifying when and how replica creation will occur.

  • Specifying performance improvement methods.

  • Selecting the computers you want to backup.

  • Specifying the template for inclusion and exclusion from backups.

  • Selecting the kind of protection method that you want.

  • Specifying synchronization and recovery goals.

  • Allocating space on the storage pool for replicas and recovery points.

  • Specifying library and tape details.

  • Specifying performance improvement methods.

Throughout the protection group creation process, the wizard provides default options that you can override if you select. If you have questions at any point in the process, click Help.
