I already checked that the Agent is ok and the refresh does not solve the issue.
I've done some additionnal testing and found an interesting while strange behaviour.
Firsrt of all the issue happens when the DPM server and the PS are on 2 different site. At least in one case a WAN Accelerator device is present.
The protected sever datasources were initally in a PG, being backed up correctly. then datasources of the PS were removed while retaining data to be added to a different PG.
after various testing I discovered that adding Volumes and DB datasources to the PG succeed while adding System Protection (BMR) fails and make adding other datasources in the same action fail also. The strange part is that when failing, no DS is added to
the PG, an error message is displayed for every failing DS mentionning the same server in all error messages as being not in AD (see 2nd scenario for similar error message issue)
DPM A is protecting several 2012 (PS-A, PS-B) and 2008 R2 servers (PS-C, PS-D) (1 volume/server System Protection (BMR) /server)
DPM-B will be the secondary DPM for Datasources protected by DPM-A.
I create a PG on DPM-B Server and try to add the 8 Ds present on DPM-A\protected servers. (PS-A to D)
- The operation fail with error 31144 mentionned 9 times.
- 31144 is displayed once for the PG and 1 time for every DS (9 times in total)
- the 8 last errors message mention that adding the DS failed because PS-C (always the same server) is not in in AD. Please notice that 4 servers are each having 2 DS but the 8 error message mention only one server name !
Unliess I remove the 4 System Protection the PG cannot be created.
Obviously, something changed as I used to be able to add them (scenario1) but I do not know how to find it.
