  • Question

  • Affected area: \Online\RGC-SRME01
    Occurred since: 12/9/2013 9:01:25 AM
    Description: The replica of Microsoft Hyper-V \Online\RGC-SRME01 on is inconsistent with the protected data source. All protection activities for data source will fail until the replica is synchronized with consistency check. You can recover data from existing recovery points, but new recovery points cannot be created until the replica is consistent.

    For SharePoint farm, recovery points will continue getting created with the databases that are consistent. To backup inconsistent databases, run a consistency check on the farm. (ID 3106)
     Failure occurred while adding one or more of the volumes involved in backup operation to snapshot set. Please check the event log on to troubleshoot the issue. (ID 30290 Details: Internal error code: 0x809909E2)
     More information
    Recommended action: Check recent records from the VolSnap source in the Application Event Log to find out why the problem occurred.
     Synchronize with consistency check.
     Run a synchronization job with consistency check...

  • Hi,

    If trying to back up a datasource that resides on the Server 2012 SMB, please check the following.

    Configure DPM backup for virtual machines using SMB storage

    Make sure the Remote SMB file server prereqs are met:

    1) DPM Agent is required on all computers involved (Hyper-V server(s) and the SMB share server.
    2) You must Enable the "File Server VSS Agent Service" role on Remote SMB File server
    Add the role via Server manager\Tools\Add Role.  On the server role selection, expand:

         File and iScsi Services
               File and iScsi Services
                     File Server VSS Agent Service

    3) Hyper-V nodes and DPM server machine$ account should have full permissions on the specific Remote SMB File share.
    4) The cluster service account should have full permission on the specific Remote SMB file share
      NOTE: Accounts should be explicitly added and not embedded in other accounts as odd behavior has been observed when using groups. 
            This is not a requirement but simply something we have seen.

    If you are using a hardware VSS provider, please add the following key on the hyper-V nodes so DPM will use system provider and see if that fixes the issue.
