Error trying to back up VM's hosted on SOFS cluster RRS feed

  • Question

  • trying to use DPM 2012 R2 RU2 to backup the VM's that run on a 4 node Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V cluster. The Guests are stores on SMB 3.0 Shares on a 2 node Server 2012 R2 Scale Out File Server cluster. when I go to expand the SOFS group in DPM I get the error:

    DPM was unable to protect the members in the resource group [Share Name] this resource group contains some resources that have dependencies which not present as part of this group. (ID: 199)

  • Hi,

    You cannot protect the SOFS share directly - you do not enumerate the SOFS group, instead, you numerate the Hyper-V cluster and select the guests to backup.
