Backup Sharepoint 2010 using DPM


As usual, here is normal checklist when using dpm

a) Install DPM agent on Front End Sharepoint

b) Install DPM agent on Database server

c) Configure Protection Group on Front End Sharepoint

But why no Sharepoint farm appear?

To protect sharepoint, you need to execute 2 additional command on the front end sharepoint server.

1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\bin\


ConfigureSharepoint.exe –EnableSharepointProtection
ConfigureSharepoint.exe –EnableSPSearchProtection


2. Create protection group


Note: Configure protection group on front end sharepoint server is sufficient. You do not need to create another protection group on Sharepoint Database server.


  1. Good afternoon,

    I ran the command, but I doubt with which user should I use? Local administrator of the machine, mossconfig, mossadmin?

    Returns the following message, to put the user and local administrator mossconfig: "Object reference note set to an instance of an object.

    An error occured while trying to start the Sharepoint Vss Writer"

    I look forward

    Thank you.

  2. Hi Pedro,
    You need to use farm administrator account.

  3. Ok, it worked.
    Need to be logged with the mossconfig and run the command with him

    Thank you.
    Pedro Vidor.

  4. There was a problem in time to add the server to the Sharepoint Database Grupodis protection, it reported the error ID: 174. I could not figure out what can be?
    I can not add it to the backup.

    Pedro Vidor.
