change short-time protection cause the console to crash RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a customer with DPM 2010 with latest Rollup .

    The DPM server is windows 2008R2

    When the customer tried to change the protection group's short-time type from tape to disk the management console crashed and the protection group is now in a "dirty" state and cannot be modified even with powershell as suggested in some newsgroup

    can anyone help in restoring the protection group state ?

  • Hi,

    Short of restoring the DPMDB from backups to a known good state, we cannot fix this in a forum setting.  You will need to open a support call so we can look at the crash and get a copy of the dpmdb so we can write a sql script to repair the SQL DB.
