You use the Alert Publishing option only if you have chosen to centrally monitor your Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) servers in System Center Operations Manager. You use this option to synchronize the DPM Alerts that are displayed in the DPM Administration Console with the System Center Operations Manager display.
The Alert Publishing option publishes to the DPM Alerts event log all existing actionable DPM alerts that might require a user action. The Operations Manager agent that is installed on the DPM server publishes the alerts in the DPM Alerts event log to Operations Manager and continues to update the display as new alerts are generated.
To publish existing DPM alerts
In DPM Administrator Console, on the Action menu, click Options.
In the Options dialog box, on the Alert Publishing tab, click Publish Active Alerts, and then click OK.
