DPM 2010 MMC crashes when browsing the recovery tab RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I am using DPM 2010 to backup some physical servers and one SQL database.  When I go into the Recovery tab and browse the sql server, as soon as I click on the database from the "tree view" (left pane), MMC crash with event ID 999.  If I browse using the center pane, I can go a bit further and actually select the database, right click on it and use the available options, but if I try to select a recovery point from the drop down list, it crash.  I have applied the latest patches and this is a fresh install,  but with the DPM database from an old server.  I have tried the following: stop protection, remove protection group, run "dpmsync -reallocatereplica", no server or database name are  longer than 16 caracters and I have read almost all thread I could find, but still no luck.  The protected database resides on SQL 2008.

    Suggestions anyone?

    Many thanks in advance!

  • Thank you DareDevil57.  I saw this post and effectively, my SQL server is listed 3 times, but I did remove the protection group completely as suggested with the same result.  I haven't gone as far as clean up the database myself :)

  • Hi,

    Unfortunatly, 99% of console crashes are due to DPMDB sql table inconsistencies, and fixing the inconsistencies cannot be done in a forum.  Please open a support ticket and if the inconsistency was due to a DPM code defect you will not be charged.
