  • Hi

    These are ignorable alerts (ID3159/30127). DPM automatically resolved this. These alerts will be raised when DPM runs sync even before replica is initialized. They will get resolved automatically during the next sync operation.

  • Hi,

    This is a known issue and the only workaround currently is to move the database to a location with shorter path name.

    Thanks, Hitesh “This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.”
