DPM 2016 - cannot create new PG using existing legacy storage even when space exisit? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    We have recently upgraded to DPM 2016 from 2012 R2.

    We have existing (legacy) disk storage pools attached which are functioning fine for our existing protection groups and these disk pools have plenty of free space.

    I am attempting to create a new protection group and receiving the error "DPM could not find a suitable disk storage with enough free spare for data source" with no listed available disk storage pools in the list.

    I was aware that DPM 2016 would require all newly attached disk storage to use MBS but I was not aware that I would be unable to create new protection groups using this existing legacy storage even if there was enough free space within the old legacy storage pool.

    Can it please be confirmed that this is the case?
