Can't attach Windows 2003 DC to DPM 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having lots of problems attaching a 2003 Windows DC to DPM 2010.  I have been able to manually install the agent onto the server itself but when I try to attach it through the manager I get :

    The user administrator does not have administrator access to the following items;  servername (ID: 271)

    When I try to attach it through the Management Shell I get this message:

    There is failure while attaching production server
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\bin\Attach-ProductionServer.ps1 : DPM is una
    ble to retrieve the configuration information from servername.
    At line:1 char:28
    + Attach-ProductionServer.ps1 <<<<
        + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Write-Error], WriteErrorExcep
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.WriteErrorExceptio

    Ensure that the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service is started. If
    the firewall is turned on, on sho1.pddom.local make sure that an exception for W
    MI is created


    WMI is running and working just fine.  I have also read through a lot of documents with this same issue and nothing seems to fix it.


    Thanks for you help

  • What version of Windows 2003?  Standard/Enterprise, 32/64Bit, R2?  Has the server been rebooted since installation? What revision of Data Protection Manager 2010?

  • Sorry I got hung up on other things and had to forget about this for a while.


    It is Windows 2003 Standard 32 bit.   It has been rebooted since I installed the agent manually but still hasn't allowed me to attach it.  This should be the revision number for DPM 2010:  3.0.7707.0.
