DPM system state backup error

Type: Consistency check
Status: Failed
Description: DPM cannot create a backup because Windows Server Backup (WSB) on the protected computer encountered an error (WSB Event ID: 517, WSB Error Code:  0x98ED90). (ID 30229 Details: Internal error code: 0x80990ED0)

in the WBS inside the server we can see it actually corresponds to low space error. indeed we have 12GB free on the drive E: and backup size is 14GB.

As we decide not to touch the drive E: (it is IDE VHD drive on that server, we add new VDHX file attached to SCSI adapter - this way we can alter disk space online. Which is not possible with VHD attached ove IDE interface. You will have to shutdown server and then change.

Now new drive F: can take the load.

go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\DPM\Datasources and in the file PSDataSourceConfig.xml locate E; - drive short in space in section FilesToProtect and replace by F:  new drive.

Rerun consistance check in DPM.
