DPMRA service constantly crashing RRS feed

  • Question

  • The DPMRA service on my exchange server keeps crashing with the following error message in the system eventlog:
    "The DPMRA service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this X time(s)." (Eventid 7034 from source 'Service Control Manager')

    This is preventing any backups on the exchange server from completing (both mailbox backups and system state backups - I can see that the latter starts but is also cancelled when the agent crashes).

    It appears that these crashes have started on 25th of october (no change was introduced to the server afaik); the following error was logged in the system eventlog:
    "The server {DA6AA17A-D61C-4E9C-8CEA-DB25DEA52A95} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout." (Eventid 10010 from source 'DistributedCOM')

    I have reinstalled the DPM agent, but the problem immediatly returns.

    Please help...
