Recovery Tab in DPM 2010 crashes with a snapin error. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Monitoring, Protection, Reporting, and Management tabs all work without error.  It's when I click on the Recovery tab is when I get the a Snapin Error.

    Exact error message: "MMC has detected an error in a snap-in.  It is recommended that you shut down and restart MMC.".....I am left with two options "Report this error to Microsoft, and then shut down MMC" or Ignore this error and continue running". 

    Doesn't matter which option I pick the result is the same.....recovery tab still does not work

    The server is a VM 2008 R2 Ent, I backed up the database, then uninstalling DPM, SQL, reinstalled DPM, SQL...then imported the database.  Still no joy....DPM is worst off then before.

    Prior to making any changes I had snapshots made, so the server is currently back to it's original state of running without the recovery tab functioning.

    Any ideas?....options I can explore to get  a functional DPM server?
