Backup metadata enumeration failed RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hello,

    I keep seeing this error on my DPM 2007 server VErsion: 2.0.8868.0 (installed on Server 2008 standard x64 SP2). SharePoint 2007 SP2 (Installed on Server 2003 x32 SP2 standard edition)

    Affected area: Sharepoint Farm\sql03\SharePoint_Config
    Occurred since: 15/04/2013 6:05:28 PM
    Description: DPM failed to obtain catalog information as part of the backup for SharePoint Farm Sharepoint Farm\sql03\SharePoint_Config on sps02.momentumhealthware.local. Your recovery point is valid, but you will be unable to perform item-level recoveries using this recovery point. (ID 3103)
    Recommended action: 1) If you do not expect to be performing item-level restores using this recovery point, then dismiss this alert; otherwise, take the recommended actions in the subsequent steps.
    2) If the operation failed for a short-term backup to disk, in the Protection task area, select the data source and click Create recovery point to restart the backup.
    3) If the operation failed for a short-term backup to tape, in the Protection task area, select all the failed data sources that belong to the same protection group, and click Create recovery point – tape. This will ensure that the tape backups are located on the same tape.
    4) Dismiss this alert immediately after starting your backup.
    Resolution: DPM automatically changes this alert's status to inactive 10 days after it is issued.To dismiss the alert, click below
     Inactivate alert

    Troubleshooting: Manual backup to disk completes successfully but scheduled one fails from time to time. THis time around it's failing every time the backup runs.

    - I've reset all crawled contents and manually stated the crawl with no success.

    - Maybe there is a site that’s corrupted and needed to be removed and re-added as per my research but im not sure how to go about doing this.

    Can i request one of you geniuses to assist me on this please?

    Much appreciated

  • Hi,

    On the Sharepoint front end server, Check the C:\program files\Microsoft.dpm\dpm\temp\WssCmdletsWrapperCurr.errlog for details.

    Search for the string:  Caught Exception trying to generate

  • Hi Mike,

    I browsed to the below location but it's not the same as what you've specified as i have nothing in the Temp folder except MTA. I found nothing to the reference you have mentioned in WssCmdletsWrapperCurr.errlog.

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks,

  • Ah - OK, this is DPM 2007, so they will be in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM folder.

    See if you have this string:  "System.Management.ManagementException: Invalid class"

    See: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dpmsharepointbackup/thread/69782b8d-9d2d-4a74-aabd-63784828d023/

  • Again i didnt find any string you menstioned. The link is for DPM 2012 im not sure if it will work for me or not.

  • Hi,

    OK - DPM 2007 logging is not as good as DPM 2010 / 2012, so if the WssCmdletsWrapperCurr.errlog does not have information for the cause of the failure (look for just Caught Exception) you will need to open a support case so a trace can be taken to identify the sqldb/site causing the problem.
