Yes. It’s true and by now you may have heard that SharePoint 2010 can recover without a recovery farm.

We’ve look into how to recover an item level. Moving forward is how to recover a sites without a recovery farm with DPM 2010 .

This is the step that you should take:

1. Backup SharePoint farm by creating a protection group.

2. Make sure recovery point included with all the sites.

3. Catalogue SharePoint . Refer to http://www.ms4u.info/2011/01/catalogue-sharepoint-for-dpm.html

3. Use SharePoint 2010 Administration Console to delete a collection. Example:

http://besharepoint/sites/hr

Here got 2 way to recover a sites without using recovery farm.

Entire farm & sites

a) Use DPM Console to recover XX\SharePoint_Config

b) Select Recover without recovery farm, point to SharePoint Database Server, a folder in SharePoint Server and a folder in Front End SharePoint server.

This will restore the entire site collection. Now, how about a single site?

Single Site

a) Use SharePoint 2010 Administration Console to create an empty site collection with the same name and path. For example:

http://besharepoint/sites/hr

The target site must use the same template as the original site. If not, you will receive the following error message:

different template

b) Use DPM Console to recover a “Hr site”. (My example)

c) Select Recover to Original Site
