  • Hi,

    Under the Protection tab for that server, hightlight the BMR or SystemState data source, then in the details at the bottom, for Replica Path, click on the "Click to view details" and see if that dialog is populated with the path to the replica volume.  If not, that is the problem and you will probably need to stop protection, delete the replica, and reprotect it.

  • Hi Mike,

    I have the same problem.
    Looking at both the BMR and SystemState replica path DOES show a valid file location

    I'm reluctant to stopping and deleting the protection group etc.

    Do you have any more information on this error 0x80070003

    cheers,

    Russell

  • Hi,

    For DPM 2010, you can use the solution in this post: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dpmtapebackuprecovery/thread/1b8947b4-9832-4d1b-a722-392e7d7bfd5d/?prof=required

    <snip>
    The issue is that BMR protection does not use PSDatasourceConfig.xml for backup, but it effects restores if it is wrong, IE: points to a drive that is not present. 

    Check to see if the PSDatasourceConfig.xml is pointing to a non-existent drive letter, and if so, change it to a valid drive letter.

    1. On the protected computer, open PSDatasourceConfig.xml in an XML or text editor. PSDatasourceConfig.xml is typically located at install path\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\Datasources.

    2. Under the System Protection section as shown below - Change the <FilesToProtect> value from present invalid drive letter IE: F: to the desired new locations drive letter IE: C: (do not change the folder name)


    < ComponentName>System Protection</ComponentName>
    < FilesToProtect>C:\WindowsImageBackup\*</FilesToProtect> 

    3. Save the file.

    4. Stop BMR protection and delete the replica, then reprotect the servers BMR workload.

    For DPM 2012, this is fixed in UR3.
