Cannot remove datasource after adding new volume to disk pool RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running DPM 2012 SP1 QFE3, and after adding another volume to the disk pool I'm unable to remove/add new data to existing PG's. The only thing that works is when I delete data from the PG and add it into a new PG. Here's the error message:

    Removing SERVERNAME\DATA failed:
    Error 31244: Error occurred while migration data source Non VSS Datasource Writer. Check the
    DPM administration console for recovery point creation errors to this data source and follow
    the appropriate recommended action. If the errors occurred due to insufficient space on the
    recovery point volume, expand the recovery point volume or free up some space on the
    recovery point volume by deleting older recovery points.

  • Hi,

    It seems that the volume for the data source is missing or corrupt.   Check that all of the physical disks are present in disk management and in the DPM Storage pool and all of the volumes are healthy.

  • Thanks Mike, yes you're right, there were a lot of volumes with missing ID's which we had to get rid of first.

    Case closed :)
