Describes usage of the command

Example

To restore the DPM and Report databases from local backup media on the DPM server, you run the following commands:

DpmSync -DpmDbLoc G:\DPM\Backups\2005\November\DPMDB.bak 
DpmSync -DpmReportDbLoc G:\DPM\Backups\2005\November\ReportServer.bak 

After you restore the DPM and Report databases, to synchronize the databases, you run the following command:

DpmSync -Sync

Note

If the DPM server is being monitored in Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 (MOM), after you restore the DPM database, you will need to synchronize the alerts in MOM with those on the DPM server. For more information, see the Data Protection Manager 2006 Management Pack Guide, available on the TechNet site MOM 2005 Management Pack Guides (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=50206).

After you restore and synchronize the DPM and Report databases and before you restore the replicas, to reallocate disk space for the replicas, you run the following command:

DpmSync -ReallocateReplica
