System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) features an enhanced recovery point status reporting. It gives administrators a high-level view of whether backup service level agreements (SLAs) are being met for every data source. It is also useful to backup operators who can quickly identify if backup SLAs are being met and then prioritize the data source that the operator needs to focus on.

This report can be configured to be sent as an e-mail so that administrators don’t need to log on to the DPM server to track recovery point status.

Viewing recovery point status

The Recovery Point Status report provides the recovery point status of all selected data sources. If a minimum of one good recovery point is present in the specified recovery point window, the status is shown as green. A blank recovery point window indicates that no recovery point is present in that time window.

You can view this report from either the Protection view or the Reporting view of the Administrator Console.

If you start the report from the Protection view, you can view the report for all the data sources that interest you. Starting the report from the Reporting view will only show data for data sources protected by that DPM server.

Viewing report from Reporting tab

  1. Double-click Recovery Point Status Report in the Reporting view of the Administrator Console. This will bring up the Recovery Point Status Options dialog box.

  2. On the General tab in the Recovery Point Status Options dialog box, you have:

    • Date and time options – Specify the date range for which the report should be generated.

    • Protection type – Select whether the report should display items protected on disk, tape or online or a combination of these.

  3. On the Advanced tab in the Recovery Point Status Options dialog box, you can specify a different the recovery point window for each protection group.

  4. Click Generate to view the report.

Viewing report from Protection tab

On the Protection view, use the View recovery point status link. If you have not selected a protection group, DPM will display the status for all protection groups. If you have selected one or more protection groups or data sources, then only the status of selected items will be displayed.

If you select an inactive data source no report will be generated.
