DPM 2010 DpmBackup -replica command RRS feed

  • Question

  • With older version for DPM I was able to run dpmbackup -db -replicas to expose the volumes for sharing.

    When I run the comand with 2010 get errors:

    Replica of Volume d: on server xxx.xx.xx Faild. Error code =VSS_E_WRITERERROR_NORETRYABLE

    DPM has run out of free recovery points space and will fail snapshots for d:\ in order to prevent existing recovery points from getting recycled.

    How can I open the Replica for sharing:

  • Hi,

     

    Did you perform an upgrade from Windows 2008 to Windows 2008 R2 with DPM installed ?  The problem looks like it may be caused by Mount points under “C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Volumes” are not migrated when upgrading from Windows Server 2008 to Windows Server 2008 R2.

    If the mountpoints are missing / incorrect, you can fix this by running DPMSYNC -SYNC command. That will remake the mountpoints and allow dpmbackup -replicas to work.  Warning: Running dpmsync -sync will mark all the replicas inconsistent and you will need to run CC check to make them consistent again.

  • Hi,

     

    The error is stating that you need to add more disk space to the recovery point volume for the protected data source d:

    DPMBACKUP -replicas creates shadow copies of all the replicas. The recovery point volume for each replica needs to have enough free space to hold the shadow copy.  Once you add more space to the recovery point volume, the command should work without errors.

  • So here what I have for Disk Allocation:

    Replica volume: 211.90 GB allocated, 133.08 GB used | Recovery Point volume 171.08 GB allocated, 4.95 GB used

    What should I set the Rocovery Point volume ?  -

  • Hi,

    Try creating a manual recovery point for that data source in the DPM UI, and if successful then try running dpmbackup -replicas again and see if the same error is reported.
