The first you must do before you install the centralized console you must prepare the SCOM server or SCOM servers before start the installation. Import the DPM Management Pack that is located on the DPM 2012 media.
If you miss out to import the MP’s you will receive the following error
Choose to import the MP’s from disk
When SCOM has finished importing the DPM 2012 Management Packs you are ready to install the Centralized Console. Go to your SCOM 2012 server and open the DPM 2012 media. Click on DPM Central Console to start the installation.
Check the check box I accept the… and click on OK

The Update Rollup 2 for DPM 2012 is containing 11 important updates:
DOWNLOAD KB2706783 HERE
Issue 1After you upgrade from System Center Data Protection Manager 2010, Microsoft SharePoint backups fail if the SharePoint database has a nondefault collation.
A backup of encrypted files fails silently when the self-signed certificate Group Policy Object is disabled.
In the About Microsoft Data Protection Manager dialog box, the Version label is displayed. However, the version number is not displayed.
On the Action menu, the Help command is displayed two times. This issue occurs because you can now access Help for DPM by using the DPM Help command. The Help item on the Action menu refers to Microsoft Management Console (MMC) help.
In the DPM console view menu, the Expand All and Collapse All menu commands are displayed multiple times.
The Windows PowerShell cmdlet to query licenses that are being used is added.
A DPM backup may fail for a SharePoint farm with a mirrored content database whose mirrored server name starts with the principal server name. For example, this issue may occur when the principal server name is "MachineName," the mirrored server name is "MachineName1," and the content database resides on a nondefault instance of Microsoft SQL Server.
This issue may occur when a consolidated backup failure warning is raised for all the mirrored databases that satisfy the previous conditions.
When this failure occurs, you may receive the following error message:
Expiry dates for valid datasets that are already written to tape are changed when the retention range is changed during a protection group modification.
For example, a protection group is configured for long-term tape recovery points with custom long-term recovery goals. Recovery Goal 1 has a smaller retention range than other recovery goals. In this configuration, if a protection group is changed to remove Recovery Goal 1 and to keep other recovery goals, the datasets that were created by using Recovery Goal 1 have their retention range changed to the retention range of the other recovery goals.
To work around this problem, create the IsDatasetExpiryDateChangeInModifyPgAllowed DWORD under the following subkey, and then set its value to 0:
Tapes are marked as reusable on the next day after the date of expiry as DPM runs a reclamation job only at midnight. If you want the tape to be reusable on the same date as it is expired, create the ExpireDatasetOnDayStart 32- bit DWORD, and set its value to 1 under the following registry key:
DPM does not enable browsing of a protected folder on a protected server that has an invalid created date and time.
A tape backup of millions of files fails, and you receive the following error message:
Details: The parameter is incorrect (0x80070057).

There are some considerations for those of you who are thinking whooohaaa let’s go:
- Pricing. Microsoft has not yet set the pricing model for DPM using Azure
- You still need a primary DPM sever on site in your datacenter or production environment
- This feature will be released with Service Pack 1 (SP1) BETA release if you are up for trying
Many of you maybe also consider security issues for cloud based backup. Since Azure will use a very advanced and sophisticated technique encrypting the data transmitted to Azure you can stay secure.
Neither will the government have access or can claim access to your data placed in the Azure cloud since the only one who has the correct encryption key is you.
Let get cloudy!

Looking at the Libraries tab you will only see stand-alone tape drives and not your library? Don’t worry, you just need to remap your tape drives and / or library information.
The tape drive and library information resides in a configuration file named DPMLA.xml and it is located under the config folder under your DPM server installation.
There are two ways of getting your library back on track:
- Manually create the DPMLA.xml file from the LADriveRemappingTemplate.xml that resides in the config catalogue of the DPM server installation
- Use the DPMDriveMapping.exe executable that resides in the bin catalogue of the DPM server installation
The easiest way is to use the DPMDriveMapping.exe executable since it will create a new DPMLA.xml file for you.
- Open an elevated command prompt
- Run the DPMDriveMapping.exe from
\Bin catalogue Start the DPM console Go to Management and libraries Run a Rescan

Instead Microsoft thinks that you should get a better value out of your purchases. Now you got two licensing models or types. The Datacenter license or the little brother Standard license.
There is actually no difference between the types of workloads you can manage with the two different licenses. The only difference is how many Operating System Environments or OSE’s you can manage per license.
In the Datacenter license you can manage an unlimited number of OSE’s; regarding the standard license you can manage only two OSE’s.
For more information regarding the new licensing forms please have a look at this PDF

This is interesting in many ways but mostly is due to storage. This size will be the size written to the DPM disk pool, this means that you can optimize your storage. The block size the DPM agent sends to the DPM server is 256KB.
Another part that also is important is how the actual write process from the DPM server to the disk pool. There are many different techniques but the most common is small(8k) or large (64k) sequencally I/O? DPM will write the data to the disk pool with a large 64 sequencally data.

If you would like to restore the User account from a System State backup you must do this in two steps.
2. Use NTDSUTIL to restore an object from the System state backup previously restored.
Wbadmin get versions –backuptarget:\\[DPMSERVERNAME]\systemstate
Mark the version identifiers output and copy that. Now you will start the systemstate recovery operation using Wbadmin.
You’ll get at question regarding if you want to start the system state recovery, type Y and press enter.
You’ll get a second question regarding if you’re sure to use a network folder, type Y and press enter.
You’ll get a third question regarding replicated content to be resynchronized, type Y and press enter.
Now the restore operation begins.
Several files will be restored.
The writers will recovery those files and report back to wbadmin.
The System Writer will restore the data.
After the System Writer has finished it will give you an output regarding the result of the restore operation. Don’t type y yet.
Open another command prompt and we will restore the deleted account using ntdsutil.exe. In the command prompt type ntdsutil and press enter.
Now you must set the instance. Type activate instance NTDS and press enter.
Now you must define which type of restore you will perform. In this example we will use a authoritative restore. Type authoritative restore and press enter.
Now you type in the distinguished name (DN) for the user you want to restore, in my case the user name is Adam Svensson.
You’ll get a question if you want to perform this Authoritative Restore, click on Yes.
When the restore is done type quit two times to exit the ntdsutil tool.
Now type bcdedit /deletevalue safeboot and restart the server.
