DPM Agent cannot communicate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a DPM server 2010 with five agents installed with this server. Out of which one particular server gives Server execution Failed (0x80080005) error.

    I have tried reinstalled the agent. But same result.

    Ping works fine between the servers.

    Firewall port properly configured. Even with firewall turned off, it gives the same error.

    Any help on this..

    regards Sundaresan.C

  • Hi

    If you manually try and install the agent and then set the dpm server do you get the same error? 

    Any AV installed on that server that could be blocking comms?

  • How are you trying to install the agent?

    If you log on to the server you want to protect and through windows explorer navigate to \\DPMSERVERNAME\agents$ 

    Install the agent, then open up an elevated command prompt.

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\bin>SetDPMserver.exe -dpmservername ""

    Then on the DPM server, open elevated DPM management Shell,

    Run Attach-ProductionServer.PS1 and then follow the instructions.

    This will make the server then appear in the management tab of DPM, where you can assign it to a protection group.

    If you have any questions, please post them.

    Hope this helps.
