2012R2 U1 - An unexpected error occurred while the job was running. (ID 104 Details: The parameter is incorrect (0x80070057)) RRS feed

  • Question

  • DPM 2012 R2 with U1.

    Adding a new protection group of a Clustered SQL instance - one database selected.

    Fails immediately upon running synchronisation with consistency check.

    No event logs created on either target or source DPM server.

    Has anybody got any ideas?

  • Hi,

    First I'd put the agent in verbose mode (HKLM:software\microsoft\microsoft data protection manager\TraceLogLevel, DWORD, 0x43e), restart agent (DPMRA service),

    Then put DPM in verbose mode (Same setting on the DPM server, restart DPM)

    Then retry synchronization, and then search in logs for exceptions (%DPMHOME%\DPM\Temp\*.errlog)

    It is quite common that the errors arriving to the console are quite generic, more if the problem lies in lower layers (OS, VSS,...) but error details in the .errlog files tend to be very precise.
