DPM Recovery to a Specific Volume on a FileServer Fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I am facing a weird issue with my DPM Server while trying to recover .

    The DPM recovery works perfectly fine on all the volumes in the network share except for a particular volume. 

    Running : Get-DPMDatasource - ProductionServer " Myservername" - Inquire Lists the volume along with the other volumes.

    Checked for if the drive is marked for deletion - and the drive is not marked for deletion. 

    Restoration from Powershell or from the GUI interface of the DPM Console to this specific volume on the Fileserver does work and errors out " DPM Cannot detect the volume"

    Security settings on the volume is checked and it s intact /mirrored to other volumes where the restoration works like a charm.

    Any assistance / troubleshooting guidance will be appreciated.

  • Hello Gov!

    What DPM version and build are you currently running?

    What exactly are you trying to restore?

    You could start investigating the MSDPM.errlog on the DPM server for any clues.
    (Default location: C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2016\DPM\DPM\Temp)
