To enable the end-user recovery in DPM 2007 on a Windows 2008 Server you should click on the recovery tab and then under actions (on the left hand side) click on “Configure end-user recovery…” link.  This will launch a wizard to extend the 2008 schema so that end users can recover files.  However due to security changes in Windows 2008 Server you will get an error - "Active Directory Could Not be Found" from running this on the DPM server.


Ordinarily you would configure End-User Recovery beginning in the DPM UI, under the "Recovery" tab.
