Search SharePoint in recovery and no matching items were found RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have successfully setup SharePoint protection on DPM 2019. In "Protection" tab the status is OK.

    As a test I created 2 recovery points.

    In "Recovery" tab I choose my SharePoint 2019 farm, under "Search" I click "SharePoint", then in the search parameter I tried various combination like "*" or "test*" for whatever I tried it always returned " no matching items were found".

    How can I troubleshoot it?

  • Hi Mark,

    In order to search objects of SharePoint backups, you need to wait for the catalog job to be completed. The Catalog task will run 3 hours after a recovery point is created. So I would suggest you to wait for the catalog job to be completed before you can do granular/Item level recovery.

    however you can manually trigger a catalog task by running the PowerShell command:
