DPM Error: “The statement BACKUP LOG is not allowed while the recovery model is SIMPLE..”

DPM cannot backup SQL database with transactions log while recovery model of database is SIMPLE. You have to just change “Recovery model” of your DB in SQL Server Management Studio.

1) Log on SQL Server Management Studio
2) Right click on database – Properties
3) In the left pane choose Options
4) Set the recovery model to Full


Create a new SQL Query (use “New query” button on the standart bar):

USE YourDBNameHere ;

5) Open your DPM Console and run Consistency Check on all databases with the same error.

Deploying DPM Agent 2012 to Untrusted or Workgroup Computers

My DPM server name is DPMSRV , x64

My target server which I want to protect is TERMSRV

1. On target server open cmd.exe with administrator permissions

2. Type net use Z: \\DPMSRV\c$

3. Change directory to Z:\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Agents\RA\4.0.1908.0\amd64 and execute DPMAgentInstaller_amd64.exedpm-client-1

4. Great! You installed main files of DPM agent on target server. Now we have to say to agent what DPM server we want to use. For this, turn back to your system drive and change directory where  installed DPM agent ( for me, cd c:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\bin\ ). Then run SetDpmServer.exe -dpmservername dpmsrv -isNonDomainServer -userName dpmsrv1 for adding firewall exceptions and user account to communicate with your DPM server.

-userName creates an NT user account with the specified username for this server to communicate with DPM server. You don’t have to create one manually!!


5. Update installed agent to the latest version

6. Open your DPM Management Console and attach DPM agent. During wizard steps use account and password from step 4

dpm-client-3 dpm-client-4dpm-client-5

7. Now you are ready to create protection group using an attached agent
