DPM Error 152 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two datacenters and 3 Hyper-V hosts.  I have 1 DPM server in each location. 

    Workloads are live on Hyper-V 1 in Site 1.

    Hyper-V 2 hosts only replicas in Site 1.

    Hyper-V 3 hosts tertiary replicas in Site 2.

    DPM 1 backs up Exchange/SQL from live workloads.

    DPM 2 provides secondary protection for Exchange/SQL in Site 2.

    DPM 1 backs up VMs with short retention from Hyper-V 2.

    DPM 2 should backup Hyper-V replicas on Hyper-V 3 but when I modify the protection group I get Error 152 like this:

    I had no problem creating the protection groups this way and never had to deal with any nonsense about switched protection.  Now, with one update or another this is all busted.  Is DPM incapable of this now and is it simpler to move to Altaro for my VM protection or is there a fix available that I don't have to create a support call to get?

    I'm not sure why all of a sudden you had issues, but the script that was used in the post you sited was caused by configurations that are unsupported and documented here under the section "Moving protected servers with DPM secondary servers".
