DPM: No agent on cluster node error. Never installed or backed up to this DPM Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a weird one.

    I have 2 dpm server2:

    DPM01 - Backups all file / exchange / Sql / etc.

    DPM02 -  Only does Hyper-V


    DPM01 backups up my exchange DAG and always has. I just upgraded both servers to DPM R2

    Now DPM02 is telling me that: A protection agent is not installed on in server cluster (Exchange cluster). Protection may fail if a failover occurs
    to (ID: 369)

    Resolution steps:
    Install the protection agent on each node of the server cluster.

    DPM02 has never backed up Any exchange servers and does not back up any now. No agents show up in the console.

    Where is this phantom server coming from? is there a powershell cmdlet that will show this server? is there a way to force a removal of this server? Any ideas? Thanks.

  • Hi

    When you running a DAG DPM will want to install agents on the cluster nodes. If you install the agent that error/warning will close.
