Configuring the DPM Server for SharePoint Protection

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

Before protecting a SharePoint farm, you must ensure that the following prerequisites are installed on the System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) server.

DPM Server Prerequisites

  • DPM 2010

  • For every 10 million items in the farm, there must be at least 2 GB of space on the volume where the DPM folder is located. This space is required for catalog generation. To enable you to use DPM to perform granular-level recovery of items (site collections, sites, lists, document libraries, folders, individual documents, and list items), catalog generation creates a list of the URLs contained within each content database. You can view the list of URLs in the recoverable item pane in the Recovery task area of DPM Administrator Console.
