Backup kills all network connectivity - please help, rather urgent RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Got a bizarre problem with one of my servers.  Everything was fine yesterday but I came in this morning to find it had no network connectivity at all.  Everything looked fine with the network settings, I just couldn't ping anything else on the LAN, let alone connect to it.

    Rebooted it and it was fine again, then set about fixing the obvious errors this outage had caused on the DPM server.  The machine hosts Exchange so I selected that protection group first and opted to create a recovery point with a full express backup.  As soon as I did so, the server lost all connectivity again!

    Anyone got any ideas on this?  Out of desperation, I've just removed the agent from the server and rebooted it and am about to re-add it but I'm grasping at straws here.
