Recovering a farm that uses a database with a SQL Server alias

The procedure to recover a farm with SQL Server aliases configured is the same as the procedure to recover a farm without aliases configured.

Before you perform a recovery, ensure that aliases that correspond to the respective databases are configured in the same manner as they were configured when the recovery point for the SharePoint farm was created.

You can retrieve all the SQL Server aliases used using the following command in the DPM Management Shell

To enumerate $RecoveryPoint, you must start by retrieving the protection groups. For more information, refer to the DPM Management Shell Help using the following cmdlet
get-help get-recoverypoint -full
