Error "Replica is inconsistent" and "Recovery point creation failed". RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I have setup DPM2010 server on Physical and this server protected all Virtual Machines on Failover Cluster success.


    2 Protected Groups (30 VMs / 1 Protected Group)

    Protection method: Disk

    Retention range: 2 days

    Express Full Backup: 8:00 PM Everyday

    Run a consistency check if a replica become inconsistent.


    And after 1 month ago some Virtual Machines fail to protect by some Virtual Machines have error "Replica is inconsistent" and other Virtual Machines error "Recovery point creation failed".


    Please let me know, what should to do in my case.



    Thank You

  • Please provide the details from the DPM alerts that are generated when the virtual machines go in to the error state.  As a best practice, make sure the DPM server has the latest hotfix rollup package (2465832 Description of the hotfix rollup package for System Center Data Protection Manager 2010: March 2011) installed and the OS of the DPM server and Hyper-V hosts are up to date with the latest service pack.
