DPM event ID's RRS feed

  • Question

  • Guys,

    I'm trying to configure our monitoring software (third pary) to check our dpm servers. I can configure them to look for specific event id's and i'm wondering if anyone knows where i can find a list of event id's that are generated by dpm 2007/2010 and eventually 2012?

    Thanks,

  • Hi Thea_sigma,

     

    I See you are using a third party tool. If you have the option to use System Center to monitor your DPM it does work pretty well. I use System Center Essentials 2010 in my environment and pull the DPM alerts into it. You can use third party tools to monitor DPM. On your DPM server you should make sure that you have published the alerts to the Windows Event Viewer. To do this follow these steps:

     

    Go to the DPM Administrator console

    Click on “Action” on the top bar in DPM

    Select “Options”

    Click the “Alert Publishing” tab

    Click the “Publish Active Alerts” button

    Click ok

     

    This will send your DPM alerts to the Windows Event viewer on your server and either SCOM can get them from there or your third party tool. You will find the alerts in Windows Event viewer under “Applications and Service Logs”. You will see “DPM Alerts” and “DPM backup  Events” (Note: if you want backup alerts you need to publish them as well).

     

    Here are links to error codes and the troubleshooting guide:

  • Hi Theta,

     

    You can use MOM packs shipped by DPM for monitoring DPM, This is a powerfull means for Mnitoring DPM server.

    It undersands all the events generated by DPM and present it in user friendly manner.

     

    You can also try DPM 2012 which has this great feature for not only Monitoring Centrally all of your DPM server but also Manage them in Efficient and easy manner.

     

    Let me know if you require more information around it.

     

    Also if you want all the events generated on DPM server you can find them in Event viewer under DPM Alerts.

    Regards
