  • VSS error with DPM 2010 and Exchange 2007

    I have a DPM 2010 with Windows 2008 R2 x64 to backup one mail server with Exchange 2007 with Windows 2008 Enterprise x64, both machine's have all updates and the mail server have all rollups to. The mail store that i try to backup don't have the CCR or LCR active.

    I canīt backup the mail store because the DPM gives an consistency error. The VSS on the mail server don't show any error's and i don't know what happens, can you help me ?

    The error on DPM say's:

    The replica of Storage group *** on *** is inconsistent with the protected data source. All protection activities for data source will fail until the replica is synchronized with consistency check. You can recover data from existing recovery points, but new recovery points cannot be created until the replica is consistent.

    The operation failed for Storage group *** on *** because the data source is not available. (ID 30169 Details: VssError:The specified object was not found.

    have you recently deleted any mailboxes ?

    maybe someone left your organisation, and you removed their active directory account?

    I'm suggesting this because I know backup exec used to tell me it failed the backup job if a mailbox it expected was no longer there.

    I'm not 100% up to date on DPM, but does it do "full" and "differential" style backups ? You may be able to get it back in sync by doing a full backup.
    Please do show your appreciation to those who assist you by leaving Rep Point

      Thanks Tehcamel,

      I created a mail store to test and i don't deleted any mailbox neither an account.
      The DPM don't work with incremental. Is all full with sync. I thin that is something with VSS but i think it's all ok
