Today I would like to share information on VSS error in DPM I found useful to first timers DPM Administrators.
In this scenario I have a Secondary DPM server backing up the Primary DPM server.
The Secondary DPM Server tried to do a Recovery Point Creation failed.
So the next thing that usually that a DPM administrator will do is to do a Inconsistency Check …. and guess what happens. It failed too.
Well, there’s a trick here. Check your Primary DPM server if there’s any Thumb Drive or Hard Drive attached to the USB port.
- Remove those storage from the USB ports (Primary DPM Server).
- Do a Consistency Check again in the Secondary DPM Server.
- Once completed, then do a Recovery Point Creation in the Secondary DPM Server.
Issue solved !!
Hope it helps you. Thank you.
