Data Protection Manager Active Directory Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am running DPM 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

    When i ran C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\End User Recovery\DPMADSchemaExtension.exe to configure end-user discovery. I hit the following error message:

    Data Protection Manager Active Directory Update Error

    Active Directory could not be configured because the Active Directory domain could not be found. Make sure that the domain name is properly constructed. The following example shows a properly constructed domain name: city.corp.company.com

    I am certain that my AD is working properly. I can do nslookup, ping and join machine to domain. Below is the result produced by dcdiag.exe

  • Hi,

    I found a workaround way. I mapped a network drive on my domain controller to DPM server. Then, I run the command X:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\End User Recovery\DPMADSchemaExtension.exe.

     

    It works.
