Customer project using Sharepoint 2007 and DPM 2007


About This Video

John Knightly tells us about a project he started at the company (name kept private) he works for in Phoenix using Sharepoint for implementing change control, bug tracking, and for the company's default internal homepage.  As part of the solution, he also started using DPM to backup everything up.  He tells us about what went well, what didn't go well, and gives some technical tips if someone else is interested in doing something similar.

Here's the key links John needed to get Sharepoint backing up with DPM: 
Protected Computer Software Prerequisites
How to Protect SharePoint Products and Technologies with DPM 2007
Sharepoint Backup and Restore Resources (from Sharepoint team blog)
Installing Protection Agents behind a Firewall

Also, you need to  download this patch which unfortunately requires a reboot, as does the DPM agent install. If you are running Virtual Server 05 R2, this patch will break things if your virtual host OS is on multiple subnets unless virtual server 2005 r2 sp1 is installed 1st!

This is a new type of content we're trying out on TechNet Edge - real, unfiltered, unbiased, IT Pro customer stories which give you technical information on their  projects using the latest MS technologies...  Please let us know what you think!
