DPM 2016, Modern Sorage Backup - DPm is reserving tons of space, 700GB Volume "uses" 10.000GB RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello! I got a very weird problem. I recenty switched to Modern Storage Backup. (Thrusday) Now the DPM console tells me that my Storage has -355% space left. What??? In reality the storage is half empty.

    I also see that protected volumes needing tons and tons of space. I mean DPM tells me that tehy do. But they do not... One 700GB Volume uses 10.000GB accorind to DPM. With every protection point the number grows for another 700 - 800GB. This dos no reflect on the storage.

    I got no clue why. I mean, it seem like DPM reserving the space. But it´s not used. I can see that the storage does not grow much.
    I put together a screenshot, because i think my explenation is not very understandable. This behavior is unknown to me.
    The only trouble it´s causing at the moment: Can´t add new members to protection group beacuse DPM tells me there is no free space. But there is plenty...

    This was a problem in DPM 2016 when released and was fixed in Update Rollup 1 (UR1).   We recently released update rollup 2 UR2) which contains many new fixes related to modern backup storage, so please install KB3209593-Update Rollup 2 for System Center 2016 Data Protection Manager - then see if things improve.

  • Thanks. Problem is partly solved. The storage shows the right amount of free space.The replica from above still shows over 10.000 GB. I was able to add members to protect.
