Error 360: The operation failed due to a virtual disk service error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to modify a protection group and add a new server but I keep getting this error below. I have 6 TB of free space so thats not really the issue. I saw the following article (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dataprotectionmanager/thread/7e8b2946-0a12-4888-97e5-1ef8d1abbcb7/) that says to manually extend the volume with diskpart but in this case he is modifying an existing volume not trying to create a new one. Anyone have any idea how to create this? can I manually create the volumes and then associate them with the server I wish to protect?

    Modify protection group: File Servers failed:

    Error 360: The operation failed due to a virtual disk service error

    Error details: VdsError:The specified disk extent size exceeds the size of free disk space.

    (0x80042515)

    Recommended action: Retry the operation.

  • Can you try to reduce/increase the size of the allocation? There was a bug in VDS wrt handling of volumes which ended in the last few MBs on a disk. The reduction/increase in the allocated size will cause spanning or remove the volume from the edge case.

  • I also have just experienced this issue. I have the same problem when I try and modify a Protection Group to add a new server that requires protection (not an existing server).

    I have a little over 1TB of free space within the DPM Storage Pool Disk; much more than is required by the server I am trying to add to the DPM Protection Group.

    My DPM environment is running on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Standard (with all the latest DPM 2010 hotfixes). The server I am trying to add to the protection group is Windows Server 2008 (x86) Standard

    Has anyone reached a positive conclusion for a solution to this issue?

    Many thanks in advance.

  • Taking the drive offline in Disk Management, rescanning disks, end placing the drive back online worked for me.
