Posted by: Brien Posey
Data Protection Manager 2007, DPM 2007

I am flying to Orlando in the morning to speak at the TechMentor conference that I mentioned in my blog a few days ago. At the last minute, I decided that I wanted to do a demo in one of my presentations that shows how you can backup Hyper-V with Data Protection Manager 2007. Unfortunately, I...

A New Critical Update

Posted by: Brien Posey

It seems that the spammers are getting to be a little bit slicker with their phishing scams. Most of the time phishing messages are pretty easy to spot. Today I got one that was a little bit trickier to figure out. The E-mail message claimed to be from Microsoft Customer Support...

DMP Inconsistencies, Part 2

Posted by: Brien Posey
Data Protection Manager 2007, DPM 2007

It's been 24 hours since my last post. At this point, it seems as though disabling the virtual memory on my DPM 2007 server was only a partial solution. My protected volumes have remained consistent, but my Exchange storage groups have become inconsistent, and I am unable to make them...

Data Protection Manager, DPM 2007

Even though I operate what is essentially a one man shop, I use System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 (DPM) to protect my data. Although my DPM server has been working relatively well for quite some time now, I have been getting a lot of errors lately due to inconsistant replicas. I spoke...

Posted by: Brien Posey
Application Compatibility Toolkit, Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit, Microsoft Deployment toolkit, User State Migration Tool, Windows 7

It's kind of funny how timing works out sometimes. About a week ago I mentioned in one of my blog posts that I hadn't seen an automatic installation kit for Windows 7 yet. Today Microsoft sent an E-mail message to beta testers asking them to try out some of the new Windows 7 tools. Among these...
