How to Publish DPM Alerts

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

The Alert Publishing option is used only if you have chosen to centrally monitor your Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) servers in Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) or Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (Operations Manager). This option is used immediately after you deploy the DPM Management Pack for MOM or Operations Manager, or after you restore the DPM database from a backup to synchronize the Operation Manager display with the current state on the DPM server.

This option publishes all existing actionable DPM alerts that might require a user action to the DPM Alerts event log. The MOM or Operations Manager agent that is installed on the DPM server publishes the alerts in the DPM Alerts event log to MOM or Operations Manager and continues to update the display as new alerts are generated.

For information about the DPM Management Pack, see the DPM Management Pack Guide (

To publish existing DPM alerts

  1. In DPM Administrator Console, on the Action menu, click Options.

  2. In the Options dialog box, on the Alert Publishing tab, click Publish Active Alerts.

  3. Click OK.
