SCOM: New MP for DPM 2012 R2

A new management pack has been released for Data Protection Manager 2012 R2. It includes Reporting, Discovery and Monitoring and is availible for download here. It is listed as version 4.2.1276.0.

The discovery and library management packs enable you to view, monitor and manage DPM servers, alerts, notifications and some other monitoring information.

The reporting management pack enables and supports collecting reporting data from all DPM servers deployed on your network. For example, if your domain deployment contains 250 DPM servers, each containing 10 data sources configured into a separate Protection Group (PG), this management pack will enable SCOM to monitor and report data on all 100 x 10 = 1000 data sources.

Prerequisites

The following requirements must be met to run the discovery, library and reporting management packs:

  • SC DPM (Data Protection Manager) 2012 R2 Update Rollup 5 (UR5) must be installed, up and running on all the DPM servers. Centralized Reporting from SCOM will not work for DPM servers that have not been upgraded to 2012 R2 UR5.
  • Set SLA Requirements on the DPM Server using the PowerShell command-let :

Set-DPMProtectionGroupSLA.

If SLAs are not set on the DPM Servers, you will not get SLA Trends in the Reports.

  • For enabling De-Duplication space savings data in your reports, import the De-Duplication management pack for File and iSCSI services.
