DPM 2010 backing up migrated 2008 r2 guests on 2012 r2 host RRS feed

  • Question

  • So here is the information, but please ask anything that you need to know.

    Previous Architecture

    DPM SERVER (PHYSICAL SERVER): 

    • OS: Server 2008 R2
    • DPM 2010 

    Hyper-V (PHYSICAL SERVER):

    • OS: Server 2008 R2
    • VM'S: SERVER 2008 R2

    New Architecture

    DPM SERVER (PHYSICAL SERVER):

    • OS: Server 2008 R2
    • DPM 2010

    Hyper-V (PHYSICAL SERVER):

    • OS: Server 2012 R2
    • VM'S: SERVER 2008 R2

    PROCESS:

    • Shutdown all VM's
    • Moved to shared storage
    • Loaded existing Hyper-V server with Server 2012 R2
    • Moved VM's back
    • Started up
    • Upgraded Integration tools

    Utilizing DPM, configured Protection Group for VM's and connected to host. These backups were running great for a couple years.

    Since moving over, the backups of Exchange, etc on the VM's are still working great, but the VM's themselves through the new host fail immediately. I can attempt to Perform a consistency check, but it fails immediately.

    The error that I have gotten on each is:

    ID:3106 All protection activities for data source will fail until the replica is synchronized with consistency check.

    Followed by:

    ID:104 An unexpected error occurred while the job was running.

    On the Hyper-V host I  only see (which is only showing for the Exchange server):

    The Data Exchange integration service is either not enabled, not running or not initialized. However, the service is running. Although it is running.

  • Hi,

    Simple answer is that DPM 2010 does not support protecting Windows 2012 R2 servers, you must upgrade DPM 2010 to DPM 2012 R2 or install a dedicated DPM 2012 R2 server to protect the Windows 2012 R2 hyper-v server.

  • I was reading through the support matrix, which I had a little trouble following. But It looked like in one part it would and another it wouldn't.

    Thanks for the help.
