" ... Backup has been stopped ...", ref. to non-existing Sharepoint content database RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When we try to create a recovery point using DPM 2010 we end up with this error message:
     
    "Prepare for backup operation for SQL Server 2008 database INFUDV7\WSS_Content_FlexRegV20 on infudv7.infintra.xx
    has been stopped because this operation depended on another backup operation which failed or was cancelled. (ID 30200)"

    The web app/content database refered to in the error message was intentionally deleted from the
    Sharepoint farm some time ago.

    We have cheched the database server - database does not exist.

    I am not sure whether this is a DMP or a SharePoint problem.

    Can anyone help - please.

  • Try refresh the agent on the management tab, modify your protection. If that doesn't solve the problem, stop the protection of the SharePoint farm, retain the data, and add the SharePoint farm to the protection group again.

  • Hi

    It seems that one of your SharePoint Content databasees is missing or deleted. If you modify the protectiongroup that your SharePoint farm is a member of and try to create another recovery point, what happens?

  • Hi,

    Yes - one of the databases IS missing because a web app was intentionally deleted.

    When we try to modify the protection groups this deleted content database is still visible in the GUI.

    Either DPM does not refresh the database view or the SharePoint config still holds information about the deleted web app?

  • Hi,

    "Stop the protection of the SharePoint farm, retain the data, and add the SharePoint farm to the protection group again" solved the problem.

    BUT - is this really the required procedure every time you delete a SharePoint web app?

  • The SharePoint protection will continue to work for the other SharePoint databases but you will recive an error telling you that the database X has been removed. To clear this error you must stop the protection and enable it again.

  • Hi,

     

    "The SharePoint protection will continue to work for the other SharePoint databases ...": glad to hear that

    ".. but you will recive an error telling you that the database X has been removed.": we don't - DPM generates this error message:

    "Type: Recovery point
    Status: Failed
    Description: Prepare for backup operation for SQL Server 2008 database INFUDV7\WSS_Content_DpmSletTest on infudv7.infintra.dk has been stopped because this operation depended on another backup operation which failed or was cancelled. (ID 30200)
