From the forums: End-user Recovery when file server is down

November 1, 2010 at 2:19 pm in Uncategorized by mikeresseler

Just read a very interesting topic on the forums (link)

A user reported that when the file server is down, the users in his company were still able to get to their files (read-only) through the DPM server.

So basically, when the file server is down, end-users were still able to contact the last backup data through the DPM server through a share named “protectedServerName_protectedServerShare".

He wondered if this was by design, or a bug.

The answer came quickly.  This is by design.  So if your file server is down, and the uses had access to the end-user recovery on the file server, then he or she will still be able to access the data through the DPM server.
