DPM reporting DCOM 10009 error every 30 minutes for server that doesn't exist RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Protection Group that includes several Hyper-V virtual machines. I recently deleted one of the VMs and removed it from the Protection Group, but now DPM is reporting a DCOM error every 30 minutes referencing the former VM:

    "Log Name:      System
    Source:        Microsoft-Windows-DistributedCOM
    Date:          7/18/2010 7:00:31 PM
    Event ID:      10009
    Task Category: None
    Level:         Error
    Keywords:      Classic
    User:          N/A
    Computer:      dpm.shs.ucd
    Description:
    DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer VLABDEV.shs.ucd using any of the configured protocols."

    Again, this server (vlabdev.shs.ucd) doesn't exist any more. How can I make it stop doing this? It's not showing anything wrong in the DPM console, but it is filling up my email with errors.

  • If you use DPM 2007 - in DPM console/Management/Agents select the deleted server. In the Details section click Remove the record of the computer from this DPM server . This will remove the orphaned server from the DPM.

    In DPM 2010 you can use Remove-Productionserver.ps1 script to remove agent record. The syntax is

    Remove-Productionserver.ps1 <DPM server name> <protected server name>

  • Hey,

    Did you also removed the server from the Agents?  (This is under the Management Tab)

    Cheers,

  • The missing server is a virtual machine that was backed up from its' host server; it did not have the DPM agent installed on it directly. The missing server was never listed under the Agents tab. The host server is the one with the DPM agent installed.
