DPM 2010 and Hyper-v error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have DPM 2010 installed on windows 2008 R2 hyper-v virtual guest machine. Then trying to create protection group (to select virtual machines) of other virtual machines (DPM agent is installed on Hyper-v host) getting error. Hosts are windows 2008 Sp2 and 2008 R2. Hotfixes are installed.

    One or more prerequisites for protecting this data source is missing.
    Ensure that the following prerequisite software is installed on xxx.xxx:

    Windows Server 2008 with
    Knowledge Base article 948465 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948465)
            AND
    Knowledge Base article 971394 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971394)
            - OR -
    Windows Server 2008 R2 with
    Knowledge Base article 975354(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975354)
     
    If you have already installed the required prerequisite, refresh the agent status in the management tab and try again.

    Maybe there is other not posted hotfix or etc?. Or backups of hyper-v guests is not posible with this DPM release?

  • Kastis77,

    You need to apply the required hotfixes shown and restart the host machine when prompt before DPM 2010 RTM can protect Hyper-V v2.0 (Windows Server 2008 R2).

    Hope this helps. Do let us know. Thanks.
