Cannot re-add SQL database to protection group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a situation where my BES database was inconsistent in DPM 2012 SP1. I removed the DB from my SQL protect group and deleted the replica data from the server. When I try to re-add it back to the protection group, I am unable to see the DB in the list of DBs on the instance.

    • BES DB is mirrored (no FS Witness)
    • Principal is 2008 R2 SP1 Cluster
    • Mirror is 2008 R2 SP1 Server (No Cluster)
    • DPM Server is DPM 2012 SP1, version 4.1.3417.0
    • Protection Group is Auto-Protection enabled

    I have stopped protection on the entire SQL Cluster (keeping data), recreating the Protection Group. I have also disabled and re-enabled Auto-Protection. No dice.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    What was the original casuse of the inconsistency to begin with - that may hold a clue why we cannot re-protect ?

    Please make sure the mirroring role has not been switched.

    Any mirrored database will be listed on the principal server only and can be selected there for protection.
