New KB makes a limited OpsMgr 2012 admin feel like a superhero

I read this Microsoft KB Article today and had a bit of a chuckle.  Basically, using the role-based access control with the OpsMgr 2012 and DPM 2012 integration, a restricted admin can submit a DPM job and get a notification of success.  It’s just a notification, though.  The role-based access still restricts the submitted action like it’s supposed to, it just tricks the operator into thinking it completed the restricted task.


I can see this causing a bit of a Abbott and Costello moment in the IT group, but it’s good to know, particularly if the DPM event was supposed to happen.
