DC System State Backup Keeps Failing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    One of our DC's fails to do a bare metal and system state backup every day. DPM Version is 2010. The DC is a Hyper-V Guest running 2012 R2. We are in the process of a procurement exercise for new hardware and software across the estate.

    I have reviewing the errors and browsed the web can’t seem to unravel what is going wrong and was hoping someone could help.

    The description of the fault on DPM is:

    The replica of System Protection Computer\System Protection is not consistent with the protected data source. (ID 91)

    I have tried running a consistency check which returns with the same error once complete.

    On the Application Event Log of the DC, at the time of the backup I have the 0x8078015b error:

    The backup operation that started at '‎2019‎-‎03‎-‎08T11:23:35.043747200Z' has failed with following error code '0x8078015B' (Windows Backup encountered an error when accessing the remote shared folder. Please retry the operation after making sure that the remote shared folder is available and accessible.). Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved.

    I'm seeing this in the DPM Log:

  • Hello Gary,

    Could you give us some more information regarding your Hyper-V environment?

    • What version of Hyper-V are you running (operating system on Hyper-V host)?
    • Are you backing up the Hyper-V virtual machine or do you have a DPM agent on the DC (guest)?
    • Have you already successfully backed up your DC or has this problem started to occur later?
    • What are the changes that have been done recently?

    Best regards,

  • Hi Leon,

    Thanks for replying.

    The Hyper-V Guest OS is Server 2012 R2.

    DPM is installed on the DC, not the Host. The DPM logs on the original post are from this.

    It hasn't worked since 18th Feb which coincides with Windows update - KB4483469

    It is completely up to date, no updates required. System boot time shows 07/03/2019

    I checked the Application Event Log on the DC. There are no errors on the 18th Feb but I did see this event:

    lsass (540) A database location change was detected from 'C:\Windows\NTDS\ntds.dit' to '\\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy51\Windows\NTDS\ntds.dit'.

    It successfully completed recovery but I wonder if this could be linked?

  • The first thing that comes to my mind is that this is not a supported configuration.

    As per the supported operating systems for DPM 2010 on the link below, Windows 2012 R2 is not supported.

    Protected Computer Software Requirements

    Now I know many have successfully managed to protect a Windows Server 2012/2012 R2 with DPM 2010, but this might lead to problems that could basically be anything.

    What I would advise you is to really think about upgrading your DPM 2010 to a newer version, for example DPM 2019 is going to be generally available in march 2019.

  • Thanks for the link that confirms this Leon. We are getting pricing for 3 backup solutions so I will make sure we get pricing for DPM 2019.

    Also, sounds like we need to make this a priority if 2012 R2 isn't supported.

    Many thanks for your help as always.

  • You're very welcome Gary, if you have any other concerns feel free to ask!

  • Just FYI, I removed the server from the protection group, deleted all data, re-created the backup and it backed up ok.

    At least this will give me a bit of breathing space until we can upgrade.

  • Okay, that's good news Gary, let's hope it buys you enough time!
