    [ Problem ]
    From the DPM Administrator Console the Hyper-V Physical machine agent shows 'OK' status.
    But, when I created a Protection Group for Hyper-V guest machine and run Consistency Checking job, the job was in 'running' state for a long time.
    It did not change status to finish or fail.
    When the transfer started, data trasfered was 16.93MB, but after running the job for several days it still showed 16.93MB.

    Need some help as to how to solve this issue of why DPM cant backup the Hyper-V guest machine.
    Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi,


    According to the description, the issue seems to be related to DPM. As we mainly focus on the Hyper-V question about Windows Server 2008 R2 system and here is not the best support resource for DPM, it is recommend you to get further support in the corresponding community so that you can get the most qualified pool of respondents. Thanks for your understanding.
