DPM Recovery job keeps failing with semaphore timeout error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I've started a recovery jon from a DPM 2010 server to a virtual machine which has to transfer about 600GB of data. It keeps failing every 7-8 hrs with the following error:

    The DPM service was unable to communicate with the protection agent on DPMserver.domain.com. (ID 52 Details: The semaphore timeout period has expired (0x80070079)).

    The ESXi hardware on which the VM is hosted is new, the DPM server also is 6 months old and has no network issues. The two servers are hosted in the same DC. Please help.

    Regards

  • Though there were no logs/failures reported for the physical nic on the DPM server, what turned out to work was making a team of two nics. It did throw the same error once after doing this but went through successfully after restarting the DPM server.
