DPM 2012 R2 - cannot backup Sharepoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've got a strange situation.

    When I run:

    ConfigureSharepoint.exe -EnableSharepointProtection

    on a WFE - the SharePoint 2010 VSS Writer Service gets disabled!

    I ran the command from an elevated CMD. The account used is the FarmAdmin Account that runs the farm Services.

    The registry key: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS\VssAccessControl

    Domain\spfarmadmin is set to 0

    When I run "stsadm.exe -o registerwsswriter" the SharePoint VSS Writer Service is set to automatically start and is running. Also the registry value is set to 1.

    With this configuration I am able to protect SharePoint in DPM - but Single Item Recovery is not working.

    DPM shows the error: Backup metadata enumeraton failed

    My Environment:

    DPM: 2012 R2 UR2 on Windows Server 2012 R2 with local SQL 2012 SP1

    SharePoint: SharePoint 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    SQL: SQL Server 2008 Cluster on Windows Server 2003 x64 SP2

  • Hi,

    do you have more than one FE Server?

    If yes, is the SharePoint 2010 VSS Writer Service runing on the other FE servers, too?

    That was a Problem at our site - we had to unregister the writer on the other FE Servers.
