Recovery from Express Full Fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm encountering the following behavior with the backup/recovery of SQL 2012 databases.

    1) Create express full recovery point
    2) Attempt to recover from that RP, recovery fails
    3) Perform consistency check on the source db
    4) Attempt to recover, recovery succeeds
    5) Perform synchronization of the database
    6) Attempt to recover, recovery succeeds
    7) Create express full recovery point
    8) Attempt to recover from that RP, recovery fails

    Removing the db from the protection group and re-adding it resolves the issue temporarily as it performs a consistency check but as soon as another express full runs, I'm unable to restore from the recovery point.

    I was able to reproduce that behavior on multiple SQL instances and DPM installations. The recovery point and synchronization jobs are successful but I cannot trust the backups to be recoverable.

    The DPM instance is running DPM 2012 SP1 UR3 and the SQL instances are 2012 SP1 CU2. The databases are set to Full recovery mode.

    Thanks for the help!

    Mathieu
