Error stopping protection of member RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to remove an old server from DPM 2010 RC (Will be upgrading to VL version soon) but the following error occurs when I try to stop protection of the member. "Error 31144: The server <SERVERNAME>k could not be found in Active Directory". The server was simply deleted from our Hyper-V test environment without being properly decommissioned. Any assistance would be appreciated.

  • Hi Zak,

     

    Yes indeed that was a bug in RC and is fixed in RTM code - if you plan on upgrading to RTM, you should be able to successfully remove it after the upgrade.

  • If your talking about removing a dead server from DPM management console, then there is a script called Remove-ProductionServer you can run from DPM Shell. Not sure if this script was included in RC though.

  • Cheers for the quick answer. 

     

    I have tried both these solutions and everytime I try to "stop protection", modify the protection group and remove or use Remove-ProductionServer it comes back with unable to find the computer in active directory? I guess it could just be a bug in the RC code.

  • Is the object still in active directory or did you already delete it?

    Maybe you could try to create the object with the same name and afterwards delete it?

    This is just a thought, not science :-)

    Cheers,
