MMC crash when modifying protection group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok got a bit of a problem here.

    I have a protection group for both an Exchange 2003 and Exchange 2010 server.  This is working fine, including checking the databases using ESEUTIL.

    Having just decomissioned the Exchange 2003 server, I am now attempting to remove it's storage group from the protection group but, when I walk through the wizard, I get as far as the ESEUTIL page and then, when clicking Next, I get an MMC crash and the whole interface goes.

    I therefore am unable to modify this protection group at all.  Bit of an issue I'm sure you'll agree :)

  • Instead of going through the modify PG wizard, why dont you select the Mailbox Databases to be retired and right click and select remove from protection. Check if that succeeds.

  • Hello,

    If you are experiencing console crashes when trying to remove the datasource from the PG, then I'd suggest a support incident with Microsoft be opened for further investigation.  What would be done is a userdump of the crash and a backup of the DPM database would be requested to analyze a root cause.

     

    Thanks
