Using Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 (DPM) in your organization enables you to protect file and application data, and provides fast and efficient recovery of that data when the original data is lost or corrupted or mistakenly deleted. But what if the entire data center with all your critical servers is partially or completely destroyed? Or if the DPM server that is protecting the data is damaged or fails?
Disaster recovery refers to restoring your systems and data in the event of partial or complete failure of a computer because of natural or technical causes. This section explains how to prepare for disaster recovery and how to rebuild protected servers and the DPM server when server failure occurs, by using a combination of the features in DPM and the DPM System Recovery Tool.
The procedures for routine data recovery using DPM are in DPM Help and in the Operations sections for specific server types.
