DPM 2012 R2 can not backup files on CSV RRS feed

  • Question

  • We use VDI infrastructure. User profile disks are on CSV. We need to configure DPM to backup the folder with user profile disks. But it is not possible to select a cluster storage folder for backup. How to backup files on CSV with DPM?

  • This is a nice question. DPM Uses VSS writers to take the backup of files and folders. Please take an output of the writer metadata and then check if any of the writer's meta data references to the files related to the user Profile disks.

    To take a look at all the writer's meta data here is what you need to do

    Use an elevated command Prompt

    diskshadow > Filename.txt

    Type list writers detailed

    Go to filename.txt and take a look at the metadata of various writers. Since this is a cluster you might have to do this on all the nodes.
