System Center 2012 R2 DPM - Recover the datasource using the alternate location workflow. (ID: 32579) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Unable to recover a protected virtual machine to a Hyper-V 2012 R2 cluster using the System Center 2012 R2 DPM "Restore the VM to the original host or cluster" option.  The recovery fails with the following error message:

    "The recovery jobs for Offline\VMName that started at Sunday, October 27, 1:01:07 PM, with the destination of SCVMM VMName Resources.ClusterName.Domain.Net, have completed.  Most or all jobs failed to recover the rquested data (ID: 3111)

    DPM was unable to access the cluster resource group SCVMM VMName Resources.ClusterName.Domain.Net for Offline\VMName of protection group Protection Group Name.  Recover the datasource using the alternate location workflow. (ID: 32579)"

    Recovery succeeds using the "Restore the VM to a different host or cluster", but this process requires additional post recovery cleanup and is less preferred to the "Restore the VM to the original host or cluster".

  • Hi, I'm having the same issue with DPM 2012 R2 recovering to Hyper-V 2012 R2.  Did you resolve the issue?

    thanks
