Sharepoint farm backup. RRS feed

  • Question

  • After configure share point backup in dpm 2010, i got this message the first time the backup run:

    6 databases have been removed from the sharepoint farm SQL1. These databases are not a part of the recovery point.

    (Followed by a list of the deleted databases)

    After this happend i am not able to add sharepoint backup, the sharepoint farm backup icon does not show in PG anymore.

    What does this message really mean?

    My system are windows server 2008 R2, Sql 2008, Sharepoint 2010 and dpm2010.

  • Hi,

    It sounds like the sharepoint writer stopped working.  Please Verify that it is running.  Also try re-running the  configuresharepoint.exe -enablesharepointprotection  and enter the farm credentials again.

  • Hi,

    Can you run diskshadow.exe - then type "List Writers" - in the output verify that the SharePoint Writer is present and that it lists all the sharepoint databases.
