  • It doesn't run, it should have run today at 10am

  • Can you go to the monitoring tab and tell us what kind of error you've got?

  • The monitoring does not show anything in relation to the expected job, not even that is failed

  • If the monitoring tab doesn't show anything in relation to this expected job that means that every jobs have been canceled or that the job doesn't exist in DPM.

    It should show the coming job for your monthly backup and show the status of the past ones.

  • stanicno12, did you ever get this resolved, and if so - how? I think I'm dealing with the same issue.

  • I believe I found the answer to my issue after digging around technet: "For any long term backups of Monthly or longer, If you change the protection group for any reason within 48 hrs of the scheduled time, it will not run as expected."

    I wish there was a warning, or something to let me know this existed. In general, DPM is too rigid with it's backup schedules.
