I am using DPM 2010 to backup some physical servers and one SQL database. When I go into the Recovery tab and browse the sql server, as soon as I click on the database from the "tree view" (left pane), MMC crash with event ID 999. If I browse using the center pane, I can go a bit further and actually select the database, right click on it and use the available options, but if I try to select a recovery point from the drop down list, it crash. I have applied the latest patches and this is a fresh install, but with the DPM database from an old server. I have tried the following: stop protection, remove protection group, run "dpmsync -reallocatereplica", no server or database name are longer than 16 caracters and I have read almost all thread I could find, but still no luck. The protected database resides on SQL 2008.
Many thanks in advance!

Unfortunatly, 99% of console crashes are due to DPMDB sql table inconsistencies, and fixing the inconsistencies cannot be done in a forum. Please open a support ticket and if the inconsistency was due to a DPM code defect you will not be charged.
