  • Question

  • Ok, I am completely at a loss as to what is happening here.  Can someone please assist?


    Configuration.

    Windows 2008 R2 cluster consisting of two nodes connected to a Dell psx 6000 SAN with Gigabit enet cards with 4.7 terrabytes available (RAID 50)

    San has three volumes. 1, 2gig quorum volum, and 1 3terrabyte volume.  The third volume is the snapshot volume and is 399 gigs in size.


    The 3 terrabyte volume is configured as a CSV volume and stores the virtual machines.

    -----

    The server running dpm 2010 is a quad core 2.8 machine with 12 gig of ram, gigabit enet cards and the following hard drive configuration.

    Raid 1: 180 gig, OS and apps.

    Raid 5: 2 Terrabytes that DPM has claimed.

    Raid 0: 850 gig.  sandbox space

    -------------------
    I am attempting to backup a VM that is 50 gig in size.  Initial backup was 9.6 hours which i felt was very excessive (different issue perhaps..)

    The Raid 5 drive currently has 1.8 terrabytes free.

    I received the following alerts in quick sequence.

    I found the following error in the DPM log:

    I am at a loss as both the snapshot volume on the SAN is more than sufficient in space, and there are Literally terrabytes available on the dpm machine that dpm has claimed as its own.

    Thank you for your time.
