Interested in how DPM protects Exchange data? One of our program managers recently did a presentation on it, and his slide deck is now available on the DPM Connect site for download (https://connect.microsoft.com/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?SiteID=205&DownloadID=4777&wa=wsignin1.0&wa=wsignin1.0). Enjoy!
If you are running DPM 2006 SP1 and encounter error 2043, "insufficient shadow copy space", the alert details refer you to Knowledge Base (KB) article 922510. The product team is working to publish that KB article as soon as possible, but in the meantime, here are the instructions for resolving the issue:
In DPM 2006, when the amount of space required for shadow copies exceeded the allocated space, all shadow copies could be deleted without notification to the user. DPM SP1 will ensure that at least the latest shadow copy is retained and generate an alert to increase the disk allocation for shadow copies.
However, DPM will stop protection of the affected protection group member, and you must manually change the disk allocations and create a new shadow copy of the affected protection group member to continue protection.
To continue protection of the affected protection group member
vssadmin create shadow /For=<<REPLICA point Mount>>
