Unable to failover production DPM 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We currently have two DPM 2012 R2 servers setup. We have a secondary server that we are attempting to failover to. We have attempted to execute the following commands to complete the failover.

    $DPMServerName = get-content env:computername
    $ps = Get-ProtectionGroup -DPMServerName $DPMServerName
    $ds = Get-datasource -ProtectionGroup $ps
    Start-SwitchProtection -ProtectionGroup $ps -Datasource $ds

    When we run this we receive the following error message.

    Start-SwitchProtection : This DPM server is not protecting the replica of data source D:\ from the primary DPM server. You cannot switch disaster protection for this data source. (ID: 31160)

    We have validated that we are replicating the D:\ drive from the primary DPM server. The only thing that is not being backed up from that drive is the symbolic links to the DPM Replicate Volumes.
