!!! MPORTANT !!! - Expired Disk Based Recovery Points are not deleted after installing DPM 2012 R2 UR7 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi Everyone,

    After you install DPM 2012 R2 UR7 update (KB3065246), DPM cannot delete expired recovery points. This will lead to extra recovery point volume usage.  

    Please download and install the fix for this issue.

    Fix for a known issue with Update Rollup 7 for System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager


    DPM 2012 R2 UR7 introduced a new switch to the powershell cmdlet Get-RecoveryPoint, it now requires a -Datasource switch as seen below:

    Get-RecoveryPoint -Datasource $ds

     If you have any custom powershell scripts that use that cmdlet, please modify them to use the new -Datasource switch.

    UPDATE 8-31-2015

    This issue is now mitigated - see this new post.
