Connecting to a DPM Server

Before you can perform recoveries from the DPM Self-Service Recovery Tool (SSRT) console, you must connect to a DPM server that backs up the SQL Server databases that you plan to recover. The steps for connecting to a DPM server include the following:
In the DPM SSRT console, click Connect to DPM Server.
Enter the name of the DPM server to which you want to connect. If you do not know the name of the DPM server or do not have the required permissions on the DPM server, contact your DPM administrator.
After you connect to the DPM server, the server retrieves information about all the recovery-related jobs for SQL Server databases that were configured by using your user account and permissions. By default, DPM displays recoveries done in the last 30 days. This information is automatically refreshed for jobs that are in progress. You can also manually refresh the information by using Refresh from the Actions menu.
|If you want to recover SQL Server databases from another DPM server, click Connect to Another Server in the DPM SSRT console. This operation will disconnect the DPM SSRT from the currently connected DPM server. For recovering SQL Server databases from multiple DPM servers, you can start multiple instances of DPM SSRT.|
