Need to explicitly setup AutoRerun for new installations of SCDPM2012 R2? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Do I have to explicitly create the AutoRerunNumberOfAttempts and AutoRerunDelay keys in the registry of my DPM servers for AutoRun to work or is it built into SCDPM2012 R2 to automatically perform a rerun when a Sync and Recovery Point (RP) fails? 

    • HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\Configuration

    The reason for the question is that I have a case were a Synchronization failed for a volume, I have automatically set the protection group (PG) to run Consistency Check (CC) when a sync failure occurs.  This CC runs successfully immediately after the sync failure, however the create RP doesn't automatically run after the CC. 

    This particular PG only runs once weekly.  This means that even after a successful CC the RP is missing up to 2 weeks.

    Thank you in advance for considering this question.
