Enumerate error whilst trying to protect Primary DPM server (2012 R2 U1) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to protect a Primary DPM server from my Secondary. I have installed the DPM agent on the Primary and can see it when I create a Protection Group for it on the Secondary, however, when I click on the + to expand the Primary DPM server I get the following error:

    DPM is unable to enumerate contents in 058d3ddab11642939ab662c1cdf3c394 ,084c893661fc4fa8b5cfb8fa451b4c52 ,0f11334fa3b942dd8b7529aa4ae7be5a ,25ee4b639b0543ebb3a5ae8c03741530 ,3ca32f1082da4fd99cabffd0347f5917 ,58ffcf9f0d4c4e69a1a38382a060f9cc ,75ccc085484a444bb0d4b1f2e9223313 ,90c6de7266db45efa1a504d2d9552c34 ,c0f28505a10f4dba9b41e991d93fe3f5 ,fbf07a7294f64c8bb2da6aab19fdee6f on the protected computer primary-dpm.local. Recycle Bin, System Volume Information folder, non-NTFS volumes, DFS links, CDs, Quorum Disk (for cluster) and other removable media cannot be protected. (ID: 38)

    I've seen references to modifying the PSDataSourceConfig.xml file to reflect valid temporary storage space, and I've verified that these are correct, not that I really understand how that applies to DPM.

    If I ignore this error I can successfully add all protected member items that exist on the Primary DPM server, apart from a couple which refuse to sync at all. There's a load of information I can provide on that fault, but I thought I should work out why I'm getting the enumeration error first.

    Can anyone help please?

  • Hi Chris. I'm afraid not. As far as I can tell it's not causing a problem at the moment. In fact, looking at the message closer I see that its icon is simply an information symbol, implying it's for information only. Confusing.

    If you figure it out before I do then please let me know.

  • Hi Joseph, I'm afraid not. You see, I can enumerate all DPM server resources once I dismiss that error/info message. Thanks for looking anyway.
