DPM 2012 R2 Rollup 4, Update Rollup 7 for Exchange Server 2010 SP3 backups with eseutil check fail RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    It could be a coincidence, but ever since installing Update rollup 4 onto DPM 2012 R2, (which was at UR3 I believe) I haven't been able to complete an Exchange express full backup or consistency check with verification using Eseutil checked. If I have the eseutil check enabled I get the following error:

    Type: Consistency check
    Status: Failed
    Description: Data consistency verification check failed for LOGS of Exchange Mailbox Database Mailbox Database 2011112513 on SERVER.xxx. (ID 30146 Details: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process (0x80070020))

    Disabling the eseutil verification allows it to succeed, but I'm not happy to continue with that for too long.

    I've had this running for many years and this is the first real issue with exchange, its a single stand alone exchange database.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Andreas

    Thanks for that, I already had most of those exclusions in Forefront. Added the rest to no avail.

    But you did get me thinking about file locks, I rebooted the DPM server and all seems well again, simple as that.

    Regards,

  • Andreas,

    the error is stating that something else has a handle to a file or files during the ESEUtil check.  Typically this is AV.  I have also seen where the Exchange limits are exceeded and that causes the issue. 

    Please ensure you have the DPM AV exclusions for the DPM server and I would advise the DPMRA.exe on the PS.  You can also trying disabling or removing AV as a test.

    DPM AV exclusions - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh757911.aspx

    You may also want to test using eseutil against the logs outside DPM and see if that fails with similar issue.  Let us know.  Thanks
