DPMSync failed to load RRS feed

  • Question

  • We use MABS v2 build 12.0.332.0 with MS SQL 2016 and SMSS 16.5.1

    It appear we cannot run DPMSync, see the error below:

    "DpmSync 2.0 - DPM database synchronization command-line tool
    Copyright (c) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    Error ID: 50503
    SQL Server Management 2014 tools not installed on this machine.
    1) Please install SQL Tools from installation media.
    2) For more details about SQL Server tools go to

    The problem is that the error message is not clear so I tried to install:

    1. SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) for Visual Studio 2017.

    2. SSMS 18.02 (latest).

    3. SSDT for VS2015 17.4.

    Nothing helped and I still see the same error. Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • Leon, thank you for the message. I tried both cmd and MABS Mgmt Shell, and I was tried run as administrator as well: didn't change match.

    So I opened a support ticket with MS and during remote session technician installed MS Mgmt Studio for MS SQL 2014 Express (, see MgmtStudio 64BIT\SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe) and was able to run DPMSync. It appear that DPMSync itself uses SQL 2014 Mgmt runtimes.
