Replica inconsistent - out of storage space RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    The consistency check fails with the following error:

    "The replica of Volume F:\ on dhnl007fp002.intra.local 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)

    DPM failed to synchronize changes for Volume F:\ on dhnl007fp002.intra.local because the snapshot volume did not have sufficient storage space to hold the churn on the protected computer (ID 30115 Details: VssError:Insufficient storage available to create either the shadow copy storage file or other shadow copy data.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Preethi Nair

  • Hi,

    This is a problem on the protected server.  Please free up some disk space, and then perform a defrag of the F: volume.  If you cannot make more free space, you can move the VSS Shadowstorage to another volume by running this command from administrative command prompt

    c:\>vssadmin add shadowstorage /for=f: /on=c: /maxsize=15%
