The Alert Publishing option is used only if you have chosen to centrally monitor your Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 (DPM) servers in Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 (MOM) or Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 (Operations Manager). This option is used immediately after you deploy the DPM Management Pack for MOM or Operations Manager, or after you restore the DPM database from a backup to synchronize the Operation Manager display with the current state on the DPM server.

This option publishes all existing actionable DPM alerts that might require a user action to the DPM Alerts event log. The MOM or Operations Manager agent that is installed on the DPM server publishes the alerts in the DPM Alerts event log to MOM or Operations Manager and continues to update the display as new alerts are generated.

For information about the DPM Management Pack, see the "DPM Management Pack Guide" on the MOM 2005 Product Documentation Web site (

To publish existing DPM alerts

  1. In DPM Administrator Console, on the Action menu, click Options.
