Getting error Internal error code: 0x809909B0 with latest version of DPM 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • After upgrading our DPM 2012 R2 to the latest version (4.2.1312.0) we started seeing a lot of failures with a message 

    The protection agent on was temporarily unable to respond because it was in an unexpected state. (ID 60 Details: Internal error code: 0x809909B0)

    This is across all types of Windows Servers 2003, 2008 and 2012R2 and mostly file share backups.

    I had a look in to the event logs and can see the application crashing:

    Any ideas what is happening please?

  • Hi,

    Is this disk to disk or disk to tape backup ?

    Since DPMRA is crashing, we will need to look at the crash dump to understand the cause.

    If you want to pursue this immediatly, you can visit the following web site to open a support incident. The charge to your CC will not be processed until your case is resolved and closed, if it's a code defect in the DPM then we wave all charges.

    In the Quick product finder, enter:

    System Center 2012 then select System Center 2012 Data Protection Manager

    In the next screen, chose the option that applies.
