DPM 2016 - File Server Cluster Volumes not visible RRS feed

  • Question

  • Latest version of DPM.

    I have a 2 node File server cluster that has 5 volumes being shared out.  I have recently added a new volume to this file server cluster (few days ago).

    Within DPM 2016, when I modify my protection group to try and add the new volume and share folder, it does not show up at all.

    I am unable to refresh the cluster object in the list as well.  

    I have rebooted DPM, file server nodes, moved the role between the nodes and still cannot add this volume.  Agent is also updated across the board.

    Any thoughts?

  • Hi,

    You cannot refresh the cluster object because it's grayed out?

  • Partially.

    Screenshots are always easier:

    (NVM I can't add screenshots or links as my account isn't verified - and no way to force a verification it seems)

    So if I have 'Cluster Group' selected, I can hit the refresh button (does not do change anything when I do it though).

    If I have INFRA-DACLUS001 selected (this is my clustered role), refresh is greyed out (same if I have either the All Shares or All Volumes selected)

  • Did you also try to refresh your cluster nodes in DPM?

  • I was having the exact same issue. Try this - under your cluster name in DPM, select the cluster resource and then click refresh on that. Apparently, refresh at the cluster level doesn't recursively refresh all of the child objects.

  • I tried this with no luck either.

    The only other thing I can think of, is the drive letter I picked for the new share is the same as a GPO applied mapped network drive.  I will be attempting to create a new share with a different drive letter to see what happens, even though its a long shot.
