SCOM 2007 R2 with DPM 2010 MP - Discovery fails if "&" in protection group name

    General discussion

  • Found a problem with DPM2010 MP:

    Discovery for DPM Protection Groups, Disks, Protected Pc, etc. does not work if DPM2010 Protection group name contains "&" (like "System State & Bare Metal Recovery")

    In event log for SCOM agent on DPM Server you can find following warning:

    The process started at 7:43:20 AM failed to create System.Discovery.Data. Errors found in output:

    C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\Health Service State\Monitoring Host Temporary Files 3\23979\DPMDataDiscovery.vbs(274, 1) Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Object required: 'root'

    Command executed: "C:\Windows\system32\cscript.exe" /nologo "DPMDataDiscovery.vbs" 0 {E776E9E1-CAAE-A72D-350D-C65CABF15D80} {E9970B1D-0395-CD4B-8838-786C9374B72C} blm-riga-wss1.belam.lv

    Working Directory: C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\Health Service State\Monitoring Host Temporary Files 3\23979\

    One or more workflows were affected by this.

    ==================================================

    To fix problem simply rename Protection Group (remove "&")
