DPM 2012 R2 is trying to back up SharePoint content database even though the content database no longer exist. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Database in question does not exist in SharePoint or MS SQL 2008. I've already removed and re-added entire SharePoint farm since I cannot exclude a database. The error still exist, ID: 30200. Replica path details still shows the content database in question.

    Jobs fails with Recovery point failed error.

    Setup:

    DPM 2012 R2 latest patch is running on Windows 2008 R2..

    SharePoint 2010 on Windows 2008 R2 servers.

    SQL back-end is MS SQL 2008 SP2

    Any tips appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • Shaon, I removed my additional comments after seeing the same errors today. I just didn't have additional storage space to stop and recreate the protection again. That's why I've decided to switch to another DPM server - for our own reasons as well. Other than on-line resources and MS academy,  I wish Microsoft had a regular 5-days online or in-class training for DPM. Recovery is such an important area, and back up is just another responsibility in addition to our regular tasks. We already have a plan to move SharePoint to MS Azure in addition to existing O365 in Azure. As you may know Azure (VM only) backup is in infancy stage, and I hope it will improve sooner than later and will become like Veeam B&R application. Will likely end up placing a call to Microsoft to get our specs and initial setups for DPM right from the start.

  • Hi,

    You can test to stop protection of member and select Retain data on the wizard. Then recreate the protection group and see if it will be updated.
