Micro Focus Data Protector Initial Setup

Ola Zaher
Infrastructure Section Head at citystars Properties
The initial setup was complex. It was not easy. Data Protector itself is easy to install, but sometimes when we re-install it, it doesn't work and some agents do not work properly especially for Microsoft and for Unix. Our deployment was done in 2008 and it took two to three days to finalize our deployment, the agents, and everything and to be sure that all backups were working well. View full review »

I wasn't directly involved but I think it was straightforward, because the integrator who did the installation was an expert. View full review »

The initial setup is complex. You have software to install on all of the machines and communication to set, including security communication. It's a delicate process, and it's not something common and easy to do. Normally we plan downtime with the customer. For a big enterprise, we take nearly a week to upgrade the solution. Occasionally, we have problems when upgrading. Sometimes there's something that's not automated and you need a specialized person that can do the upgrade or the installation for you.

The initial setup is very complex. It's hard to understand how the components work together and how each component is related together. I read a lot of information but I still don't really understand MFDP. I don't spend much time on it, therefore it's hard to understand. The information about MFDP is easy, but the application of it is not easy. When I deploy the software, I only understand it because I have written down all the information. It just takes a few hours to finish the installation and the configuration. View full review »

The initial setup was complex. It's because it's not user-friendly. I think they can work a lot harder at making the solution more intuitive. Deployment took about two weeks. For deployment and maintenance, we only needed two people. View full review »

I found the initial setup to be ok. I would not say simple or complex, but medium. Our goal is to have the simplest possible solution that will work without extra effort. View full review »

The initial setup was really complex. I am not at all impressed by this solution. It was difficult to find anyone here in Denmark to help us with the setup because my experience was that everybody was moving away from this solution. So we had to do the installation ourselves. View full review »
