Can't attach Server from untrusted Domain to DPM2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I am trying to attach a newly installed exchange Server 2013 to our DPM2012 Server from a different Domain. 

    What i did so far : 

    1. attached DPM Agent Installer Folder on exchange server and installed agent via CMD
    2. used the folowing command on the protected server 

    SetDpmServer.exe -dpmServerName DPM.DOMAIN.TLD -isNonDomainServer -username DPMEX
    ----

    Configuring dpm server settings and firewall settings for dpm server =[DPM.DOMAIN.TLD]

    The following firewall exceptions has been added:
            - Exception for DPMRA.exe in all profiles.
            - Exception for Windows Management Instrumentation service.
            - Exception for DCOM communication on port 135 (TCP and UDP) in all prof
    iles.
    Configuration completed successfully!!!

    3. But now - when i try to connect the agent to the DPM server it wont let me do it - wheter i try  it from the GUI or the Commandline

    PS C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\bin> .\Attach-NonDomainServer.ps1 DPM.DOMAIN.TLD -psname EXCHANGE.hosting.domain2.TLD -username DPMEX 
    Password:: **********
    There is failure while attaching production server
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\bin\Attach-NonDomainServer.ps1 : Mit dem Sch
    utz-Agent auf Server EXCHANGE.hosting.domain2.TLD konnte keine Verbindung herges
    tellt werden.
    Bei Zeile:1 Zeichen:29
    + .\Attach-NonDomainServer.ps1 <<<<  DPM.DOMAIN.TLD -psname EXCHANGE.hosting.domain2.TLD -username DPMEX
        + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Write-Error], WriteErrorExcep
       tion
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.WriteErrorExceptio
       n,Attach-NonDomainServer.ps1

    I checked and temporarly disabled the firewall - i am able to ping between the servers (using a hostfile on both servers to set the IP)
    i can access network shares between both servers.... what am i missing / why isnt this working ? 

    any hints welcome

  • Hi

    If you map a drive to the DPM server from an elevated command prompt and then run the following:

    DPMAgentInstaller.exe <DPM Server Name> 

    after it has run can you attach the server?
