Consistent DPM backup failures on 1 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I have a DPM server that is consistently having trouble backing up a particular server (it's only backing up 1 folder on this server).

    The Domain profile firewall on the DPM server is off (but the other profiles are on). DPM is on a 2008 R2 vm. The client server is a physical 2003 box. Below is the error on the client server (no errors at the same time on the DPM server).

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: DPMRA
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 83
    Date:  8/9/2011
    Time:  3:04:04 PM
    A DPM agent failed to communicate with the DPM service on DPM.NAPALC.local because the host is unreachable. Make sure that DPM.NAPALC.local is online and remotely accessible from the computer running the DPM agent. If a firewall is enabled on DPM.NAPALC.local, make sure that it is not blocking requests from the computer running the DPM agent (Error code: 0x800706ba, full name: DPM.NAPALC.local).

    Any suggestions are welcome.
