Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center Data Protection Manager 2010
System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) includes the DPM Self-Service Recovery Configuration Tool for SQL Server (SSRCT). You can use this tool to delete 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 which protected databases a user can recover and to which instances of SQL Server users can recover databases. A user can recover a database by using the DPM Self-Service Recovery Tool (SSRT) for SQL Server. For more information about the SSRT, see DPM Self-Service Recovery Tool.
You can also use cmdlets in DPM Management Shell to delete DPM roles.
