Backup Software That Does Not Support VSS

Published : September 27, 2005

When you use backup software that does not support VSS, you cannot back up directly from the replicas. Instead, you must use the DpmBackup tool to create backup shadow copies of the replicas and database backups of the DPM and Report databases, and then use the backup software to archive the backup shadow copies and database backups to tape.

For more information on DpmBackup, see “Using Backup Software that Does Not Support VSS” later in this chapter.
