Data Protection Manager recovery points

20130102_DPM_SelfService05In my sandbox I test a lot of solutions, management packs, integration packs and ideas. They don’t always work out the way expected The result is that I often need to restore a database from backup. I use Data Protection Manager to protect my databases, Service Manager to order the restore and Orchestrator as the “doer”. In this blog post I want to share a example how to make restore of database a bit easier.

In the Service Manager self-service portal I have a request offering named Restore Database.

  • Restore to Original Location. If this checkbox is enabled the database will be restored to original instance. In most cases I restore to a network folder.20130102_DPM_SelfService02 Network Folder is used in this integration pack in the same way that it is used in the Data Protection Manager user interface. Choosing Network Folder recovers to a local path on a server that have the DPM agent installed. I have configured my runbook (also included in this blog post) to always recover to C:\RESTORE on the target machine
  • Target server. If I select to restore to a network folder, default, I input a server name. For example if I want to restore the Orchestrator database to my Orchestrator database server I input SCO12SP1-SQL01 in the Target Server text box.20130102_DPM_SelfService01 The database backup will then be restored to C:\RESTORE in the SCO12SP1-SQL01 server.
  • Recovery Point to Restore. In this query based list I can select which DPM recovery point to restore. I have a runbook (also included in this blog post) that create CI of each recovery point.

Service Manager invokes the “1.2 Restore” runbook in Orchestrator. The runbook is divided into two tracks depending if restoring to a network folder or to original location.20130102_DPM_SelfService03 Both Data Source ID and Recovery Source ID, used to recover the SQL database, is stored on the Backup CI in Service Manager so we dont need to get them from DPM within the runbook. In general the runbook restore the database and updates the service request.

Runbook “1.1 Create Backup CIs” is the second runbook in this example. It is used to create backup CI objects in Service Manager. The backup class is a custom class that I have created with the Service Manager authoring tool. The runbook runs every hour and creates new/updates/deletes CIs of the backup class.

The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has to date failed to produce a congressionally-mandated report on climate change that was due in 2004. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has called the failure an "obfuscation."
* The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced plans to close several libraries which were used by researchers and scientists. The agency called its decision a cost-cutting measure, but a 2004 report showed that the facilities actually brought the EPA a $7.5 million surplus annually. (Thanks to Mark B. below.)

Independent scientific research on Gulf oil leak

by Candidus

Leak is lacking money
This is a very bad sign. If the Obama administration is serious about suing BP and other oil companies involved in the leak, this problem has to be resolved quickly. BP is indeed paying some scientists to do research into the problem but somehow the administration allowed BP to include language that may not allow that information to be made public. (Whoever allowed that should be sent packing.) How is it possible to make a case when there's little scientific research to support your case? NY Times:The only federal agency to distribute any significant grant money for oil spill research, the National Science Foundation, is out of money until the next fiscal year begins Oct
