Recovery Point Creation Failed on Some SQL Databases Backed Up from DPM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Reposting from Azure log per request:


    I am testing on-line backups to Azure using my DPM 2012 R2 on-premise server. I have selected two separate SQL Servers, both Windows 2008 R2 VM's running SQL Server 2008.  On both servers most of the databases are backed up with no errors.  But each server has at least one database that fails to create on online recovery point.  I've freed up disk space on the SQL servers and the DPM server, modified disk allocations, etc. but nothing changes.  There are no errors on the SQL Servers.  The error in DPM is below.  Can anyone help point me in the right direction?
