Managing Data Protection Manager with MOM 2005 MP

Yes, there’s a management pack for DPM.

Data Protection Manager (DPM) is a server software application that enables disk-based data protection and recovery for file servers within an Active Directory domain. DPM performs replication, synchronization, and shadow copy creation to provide reliable protection and rapid recovery of data by both system administrators and end users.   By using the DPM Management Pack, an administrator can centrally monitor the state of data protection and recovery for multiple DPM servers, and the file servers that they protect, in Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 (MOM). The Management Pack also monitors key health and performance indicators on DPM servers.  For DPM servers, the DPM Management Pack monitors the state of DPM database and service health, server performance, and key indicators such as disk availability and configuration changes to volumes protected by DPM. For protected file servers, the DPM Management Pack monitors the state of connectivity with DPM, data recovery operations for protected volumes, and replicas and shadow copies that are stored on the DPM server.
