As a system administrator, you are accustomed to managing servers in different roles. You plan your maintenance routines to accommodate each server’s role, and you take that role into account when making structural changes such as changing the server name or relocating the server. So what do you need to consider when the role of a server running System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) is added to your network structure?
This section discusses performing common maintenance tasks on DPM servers. It provides guidance on making changes to server configurations after DPM is set up and on how DPM manages time zones. This section provides information about configuring firewalls on both the DPM server and protected computers so that communication can be maintained. This section also provides recommendations for monitoring DPM and offers methods for monitoring.
