DPM<->DPM protection 2012r2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two dpm2012 r2 servers both running on windows server 2012 r2.  They are at different data centers connected with a 100m point to point with latency <10ms. 

    Lets call them dpm01 and dpm02

    dpm01 is at datacenter 1 fw disabled
    100mbit currently zero firewall/filter rules in place
    dpm02 is at datacenter 2 fw disabled.

    dpm01 can backup dpm02 and its protected datasources without issue.

    dpm02 errors when trying to attach dpm01 with error:
    DPM could not connect to the Service Control Manager on these servers:
    dpm01 (ID: 33221)

    running sc \\dpm01 query is successfull
    running sc \\dpm01 query dpmra is successfull
    ping dpm01 is working no issue.
    both forward and reverse lookup zones have entries for both dpm servers, ping and ping -r resolves correctly.

    I just cant figure out why dpm02 refuses to connect to dpm01.

  • setdpmserver.exe doesnt appear to exist on either server.

    Also, I am an idiot.  I was accepting the auto-typed computer name which happend to be nearly identical except for one character while testing using the correct name that i manually typed.

    All works just fine, sorry for the trouble.
