DPM Express Full Backup delayed by 3 hours RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some reason my DPM backup for VMs under a protection group is delayed by 3 hours. So far we couldn't find any similar issue posted on line. The server date/time is the same of that of the database.

  • Hello Vijay,

    The backup type is Express Full Backup scheduled everyday at 7:00AM.
    For some reason it is being started at 10:00 AM.

    I am testing using SC 2012 R2 DPM and this is the only VM I am trying to backup during this time.

    I have another test VM with the same backup type set at 3:00AM and it actually runs at 6:00AM.

  • Here is another interesting thing I found on the database.

    ServerName        ServerId                Description                DaylightName        StandardName
    TESTHVHOST    56E37BCD-353F-475D-8555-3471D844B959    (UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)    Pacific Daylight Time    Pacific Standard Time

    I'm quite sure that when this server was setup on the DPM Server, the hyper-v host server time, vm time, dpm server time is set to EST.

    How is it that it's PST on the DPM tables.
