Unable to see all the protected servers From Primary DPM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have got Primary DPM and Replica DPM. I could backup everything on the Primary DPM but unable to see all the servers on the Primary DPM to backup. I tried to modify replica group but still struggle to see all the servers to backup on the replica group.

    Please advise what step have I missed?

  • Hello!

    So you have a primary and a secondary DPM server right?

    Have you added the secondary DPM server after all the protection groups already have been created? If yes, then then try stop protecting a member and re-add it to the protection group, it should then be seen from the secondary DPM server.

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • First you need to make sure that the primary DPM server is added to the secondary DPM server (under Management) and same the other way around, secondary DPM server added to the primary DPM server.

    What you will then need to do is to "Stop Protection Group" (with retain data) and recreate the protection groups on your primary DPM server, your secondary DPM server was added later which means it won't be able to identify the current protection groups, only new protection groups.

    I have tested this with the latest DPM 1807 and I was able to see all protected servers & protected items on my secondary DPM server after recreating the protection groups, I could not see the ones that already existed before recreating them.

    Did you perform these steps?

  • I was afraid didn’t know how to stop the group? “What you will then need to do is to "Stop Protection Group" (with retain data) and recreate the protection groups on your primary DPM server” I have no idea where and how to stop it?

  • Ah okay, no problem! It's always better to ask if you are unsure!

    To stop a protection group:

    1. Head to the Protection tab in the System Center DPM Adminitrator Console.

    2. Right click a protection group and choose Stop protection of group.


    3. Choose the retain protected data.

  • It’s a lot better now. Let me get this right. First stop 4 protection groups in Primary. Then stop one protection group in secondary. Add protection group back in primary DPM and in secondary.

  • That's right:

    1. Stop the protection group(s) (with retain data option) on the primary DPM server.

    2. Stop the protection group(s) (with retain data option) on the secondary DPM server.

    3. Re-create the protection group(s) on primary server.

    4. Re-create a new protection(s) group on secondary server.
