System Center Data Protection Manager: Error when lowering the allocated storage

Yesterday I was working on a DPM installation and made a mistake when I was working on a protection group and I needed to change the size of the allocated storage.  I made the mistake by lowering the size and pressing the TAB button and suddenly the DPM console crashed.  Here’s what I did:

Go to the DPM Console –> Protection.

Choose the correct protection group and press the Modify Allocation button.

After this, I changed the size of the replica to 10 GB and pressed the tab key.

Et voila,

Till now, this bug is confirmed by Microsoft and not yet solved… 😉
