dpm protecion failed- unable to configration protection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Im installing succesfully dpm agent to other windows server 2008 r2 web edition server. I can see its OK on the management tab.

    But when i create a protection  group, i m getting the unable to configuration protection error. ( see below)

    DPM could not run the backup/recovery job on WIN-5KQBEFRGT04 because it is owned by the DPM server domain.local. (ID 3180)

    Ant i trying to click claim ownership of the computer but its not solving. we are still gettintg the same error.

    How can we solve this problem ?

  • Hi anonymous,

    was your Server "WIN-5KQBEFRGT04" already protected by another server before? Do you have a secondary server?

    What you could try is use the setdpmserver tool on your protected server :

       SetDpmServer.exe –dpmServerName DPMServerName

  • Also in case that doesn't work.
    Could you try to reinstall the agent on the server?

    Better use the manual install to make sure it will install correctly :
