Re-Protection previously inactived data. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Brothers,

    Recently I stopped protection on a couple of SQL Databases so they moved into the previously inactived data protected category. I want to re-protect them again when ever I do that I get a error (Some migration error) Anyone know how to fix this?

    Link to the error.

  • Hi,

    This is side-effect of feature co-location. This feature enables you to protect multiple databases on a single replica. This is also implies all these databases share common recovery point volume. Hence when you selectively inactivate a few databases and then reactivate them in a New Protection group, DPM cannot migrate the older recovery points to new PG. Did you try reprotecting the databases in the older protection group? This ways there won't be any migration involved.

    Hope this helps.

    on step 2 here

    I manage to do the first step which is to get a list of all data sources on the DPM server.

     

    I cannot do step two how I do step two?

  • Can you post the output of step 1 (list of all data sources) as well as the desired data source as it shows in the list?  This will help us to get the correct syntax for step 2.
