Starting up a scheduled Replication Job in DPM 2012/R2 … immediately

Sometimes i’m creating scheduled replication tasks because i’m still working on servers and systems or i have performance considerations.
Surprisingly often I’m finished earlier than expected and would like to start the postponed tasks as soon as possible.


But i couldn’t find DPM specific tasks within the task scheduler and starting the job with the usual way via GUI wasn’t helpful.If you try to “Create a recovery point” you should get an error message.


I’ve observed a behavior of DPM which is useful.
Every consistency check is a recovery point as well and these checks are usually working every time.
So start a consistency check and you get your first recovery point immediately.

Consistency check is finished and there’s the first recovery point.
