Unable to remove Protection Group RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running a DPM server with 2016 UR4. This weekend the storage pool ran full and all backups stopped. I managed to clear enough space to get most of them working again. But one PG takes a lot of space on disk (26TB) and it also needs a consistency check.
    If i run this the disk will be full again, so i would like to stop the protection of the PG and remove the data from disk.

    But when i try to do this it fails with ”Error 944: Database operation failed”.
    This is a standalone physical DPM server, and i dont have any extra storage to attach.

    Any ideas on how i can just simply remove the PG and the disk allocation to free up the space again?

  • Hi,

    can you try to add some small folders to the PG, and than remove the old Backup Datasoruce.
