dpm sql 2005 does initial sync job and fails and keeps doing consistency checks RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi, we have sql 2005 in a mirrored config.  i do the initial sync and this always works. it then says its inconsistent and starts doing a replica and then after a number of hours it just errors out with the message below.

    Description: The replica of SQL Server 2005 database Bdbname (mirrored between - server and server) on server is inconsistent with the protected data source. All protection activities for data source will fail until the replica is synchronized with consistency check. You can recover data from existing recovery points, but new recovery points cannot be created until the replica is consistent. 

    For SharePoint farm, recovery points will continue getting created with the databases that are consistent. To backup inconsistent databases, run a consistency check on the farm. (ID 3106)
    An unexpected error occurred while the job was running. (ID 104 Details: Internal error code: 0x80990A59)
    More information
    Recommended action: Retry the operation.

    any one any ideas what the error code means?

  • Hi,

    It sounds like the shadow copy is getting deleted before DPM is finished.

    ErrorCode: 0x80990A59 (-2137453991): E_DSM_SHADOW_COPY_MISSING:  Shadow copy is missing/deleted in between the operation. check for enough storage space in shadow copy volume.

    Check to see if you have any system event messages from source volsnap on the SQL Servers.
