The video under this post covers System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 and how to deploy and configure the Self-Service Recovery Tool (SSRT).

"DPM 2010 includes the Self-Service Recovery Tool for SQL Server which's installed on the DPM server and accessed from the Protection task area in the DPM Administrator Console. You can use this tool to create, modify, or delete DPM roles, which enables users to perform self-service recovery of protected SQL Server databases that they own. When self-service recovery is enabled, database owners can use the SSRT for SQL Server to recover their databases without the need for intervention by a DPM administrator. The SSRT allows for less administrative overhead for SQL restores, is policy driven for granularity for access control and makes remote restores possible without needing access to the DPM server."

This video covers the following:

  • Installing SSRT on a member server.
  • Configuring SSRT in DPM
    • Setting up groups
    • Setting up recovery items
    • Setting up recovery targets
  • Retrieving recovery point from DPM using SSRT from the desktop.
