DPM–Backing Up Hyper-V (Consistency Check Error)

Today I had an issue of backing up the Hyper-V through the DPM 2010.  The agent is installed into the Hyper-V host.  There’s also ample of space in the drive where the VHDs resides.  The same drive also caters for the snap shots.

When I execute the Consistency Check it states that DPM failed to synchronize changes for Microsoft Hyper-V \Backup Using Child Partition Snapshots\VMServername on Hyper-VServerName because the snapshot volume did not have sufficient storage space to hold the churn on the protected computer (ID 30115 Details : VSSError : Insufficient storage available to create either the shadow copy storage file or other shadow copy data. (0x08004231F))

Status is Failed.

Therefore I carried out the steps below to have it working.

Step 1 (to be perform in Hyper-V Host)

  • Open the the Registry.
  • Add in the key :
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\Agent\UseSystemSoftwareProvider

SGSIN0950-SCR4

 

Step 2 (to be perform in the DPM Server)

  • From the Command prompt (Run as Administrator), key in the command to stop the DPM and restart the DPM services.  The command are as follow :

    net stop dpmra

                 then to start the DPM service

    net start dpmra

SGSIN0750-SCR103

Perform the Consistency Check once more.  Once it’s completed, then you can Create recovery point for restore.

Thank you and hope it helps you.
