DPM AC Service crashes every time it starts RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have on server running Server 2008 R2 (not yet SP1), and the DPM AC service on it keeps crashing, preventing upgrades of the DPM Agent. The specific message it returns is:

          The DPM AC Service service terminated with service-specific error The system cannot find the file specified..

    This is Event ID 7024. There's no indication of what file it is looking for. I've already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the agent, but the error pops up again. My DPM console says it needs to be upgraded even though I've installed the latest version of the agent.

  • This was so long ago I honestly don't remember how we fixed this, but it's all working again. I think I just had to fully uninstall the agent on the local server and then delete some references to it in the Registry, then reinstalled locally as well rather than from the DPM console.
