System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 SP1: Sharepoint issues

December 2, 2009 at 8:28 am in Uncategorized by mikeresseler

Hey All,

One of our engineers was having a big issue with the protection of a sharepoint farm.  In DPM, he could not resolve the following error:

The replica of SSPComponent_SSP Intranet on servername is inconsistent with the protected data source. All protection activities for data source will fail until the replica is synchronized with consistency check.

He has searched a lot on the problem but finally found that the problem was not with the DPM program but with the Sharepoint configuration.

The problem was that some service accounts tried to do a remote log-on to the server.  These service accounts are used for the timer / search server functions and had the appropriate rights locally but did not had the rights to do this remotely.

After adding the service account the rights to “logon as a batch” and “logon as a service” it suddenly started to work again.
