MigrateDatasourceDataFromDPM stalls RRS feed

  • Question

  • This morning we started migrating short-term data to new disks, starting with the secondary DPM.

    We see that it has successfully moved 2 volumes (16Gb total) in about three hours.

    Now all action seems to have stopped, dpm average health is good but nothing happens with the migration. We ran "MigrateDatasourceDataFromDPM.ps1 -DPMServerName xxxzzz -source $disk[2] -Destination $disk[0]".

    the only output is a warning that migration of inactive protection group is not supported.

    Do we need to worry? :-/

    My collegue found that the warnings about inactive replicas actually aborted the whole procedure without notifying it, we had to cancel, remove the inactive replicas and rerun the script.. waiting for success before closing thread.

  • There were no such jobs at that point. We ran the migrate-script as domain admin which seemed to start the migration throughly. After migrate had been started, pool-usage went up sky high, turned our to be the pruning-script that didn't ran. A couple of manual executions did the job.

    O.T

    Is it possible to modifiy the time of day the pruning will be executed, I'd prefer to run my backups at midnight but that seems to collide with this maintanence-job?

    Summary manager runs every night at midnight and does some house cleaning work, populates reporting data, and kicks off the pruneshadowcopies2010.ps1 script.

    You can run this sql script to get the sql agent job number. then modify the job schedule to start at a later time.

    use DPMDB         
    SELECT SCH.ScheduleId as "SQL AGENT JOB#"
    FROM tbl_JM_JobDefinition JD
    JOIN tbl_SCH_ScheduleDefinition SCH
        ON JD.JobDefinitionId = SCH.JobDefinitionId
    WHERE JD.Type = '282faac6-e3cb-4015-8c6d-4276fcca11d4' -- summary manager
    AND JD.IsDeleted = 0
    AND SCH.IsDeleted = 0

  • Hi,

    Look at the DPM Jobs and see if you have any Post-recovery Operation jobs.  Those will represent replica copy jobs associated with the migration.
