DPM 2012 SP1 End User Recovery - Windows 2012 Clustered File Server - Using node name instead of file server name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am seeing a really strange issue relating to end user recovery/recover previous versions for all shares on our Windows 2012 file server cluster.

    Infrastructure consists of the following:

    DPM 2012 SP1 Server : DPM01

    HYPERV/FILESERVER CLUSTER: (NODE1 and NODE2)

    FILE Server Resource with the following:

    SERVER NAME: YOA-DATA02

    SHARENAME: DATA

    ----------------------

    The problem I am seeing is end users are unable to use the recover previous versions feature from their client. This is working fine on our non-clustered file server.  Looking at the MS-ShareMapConfiguration container in AD I can see the objects that have been created by the DPM server. However when I look at the properties of the object the MS-productionSrvShare rather than list the \\ServerName\Sharename (\\YOA-DATA02\DATAit lists the node name of the cluster. (\\NODE1\DATA) furthermore there is an additional entry for the same share listed under the second node in the cluster.

     Is there anything specific that I need to do to get DPM to populate AD with the correct server name for the clustered file server?

    Cheers

    Paul
