recognizing new content db's? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently backing up Sharepoint 2013 with DPM 2012 R2.

    It is only showing 5 of my 8 content db's.

    the new content db's have been added to the farm since the protection group was created.

    Any idea how get dpm to see the new db's?

  • how did you create the new db? a/ From SharePoint (Admin console / SP powershell) or b/ do you preprovision the databases at the sql level and then convert them to contentdb?

    c/ Do you have a SQL Server protection on the same instance for protecting, say, service application databases?

    If you answered yes to b/ and c/, it could happen that your databases are seen first on your auto-protected sql server instance and added to the sql server PG instead of the SharePoint protection.

    If this is the case, you must remove protection for the database on the sql server PG, and the agent on the wfe should detect the new database.
