Stop DPM requesting Hyper-V uses snapshots RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am receiving the following error during the DPM Hyper-V backup window.

    "An attempt was made to issue a command to a password protected storage system and the correct password is not known."

    From what I can see DPM is trying to backup Hyper-V at the time this occurs so I am assuming that DPM instructs Hyper-V to take a storage snapshot. However the storage we are using does not have this functionality to support the snapshot. I would like to disable this snapshot feature but I am unsure if this is a setting within DPM or something within Hyper-V that needs to be configured.

    Can anyone offer any advice please? It's a simple 2 node setup with shared direct attached storage to a Dell MDS4300 storage array. The snapshot feature on the storage is a premium feature my client has not purchased the license for.
