Recovery point failure - DPM 2012 R2 backing up Hyper-V cluster 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just upgraded our Hyper-V Cluster from 2012 to 2012 R2. I am trying to get it working again with DPM 2012 R2 and am having problems.  DPM creates the replica fine but when it tries to create a recovery point, it fails with the following error:

    Change Tracking has been marked inconsistent due to one of the following reasons
    1. Unexpected shutdown of the protected server
    2. Unforeseen issue in DPM Bitmap failover during cluster failover of one or more datasources sharing the tracked volume. (ID 30501 Details: The parameter is incorrect (0x80070057).

    I then ran a consistency check and that worked fine.  I tried to take another recovery point and it fails with the same message again.  Why is this occurring?

  • We've had this problem when we upgraded our cluster to R2 too..

    The way we fixed it was to remove the affected server from the protection group without deleting the data, then re-add the server to the same protection group.
    DPM kicked off a consistency check and the problem disappeared after that.
