Once installation of the prerequisite software (SQL 2000 with SP3 and SQL Reporting Services) and the DPM server software are installed on the Windows Server 2003 SP1 server, you must configure the storage pool, create protection groups and add file servers (with agents installed) to the groups before you can start protecting your data with DPM.servers. There is a replica for each separate volume that is copied. Shadow copies, which function as copies of a replica at a specific point in time, that can be recovered by end users. There can be up to 64 shadow copies stored on the DPM server for each protection group. Transfer logs that contain information about the copying process.
