Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 is a server software application that enables data protection and recovery for protected computers within Active Directory domains.
With System Center Data Protection Manager, an administrator can back up Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 farms. By using the features in System Center Data Protection Manager with Service Pack 1 (SP1), an administrator can now back up the search index without writing additional scripts. For more information, see the following articles:
If you are running System Center Data Protection Manager without SP1, the configurations and site collections that are stored in the configuration and content databases are backed up as part of the farm backup; however, the search database and index are not backed up. To back up and recover Search when you are running System Center Data Protection Manager without SP1, use the procedures and scripts that are provided in this white paper.
