(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/979970/ )Description of the latest hotfix rollup package for System Center Data Protection Manager 2007: March 29, 2010
This article describes the issues in Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 that are fixed in the Data Protection Manager 2007 hotfix rollup package that is dated October 23, 2009.
This rollup resolves the following issues.
Issue 1The DPM 2007 error logs are flushed only when the DPM service starts or stops. If the DPM service crashes, the DPM error logs are not flushed. This behavior causes some errors to be missing from the error logs.
Note After you apply this hotfix rollup, the DPM error logs are flushed every five minutes. The error logs are also flushed when the DPM service stops or crashes.
Issue 2The DPM SQL Server database causes Microsoft SQL Server exceptions that are not captured in DPM traces.
Issue 3Express full backup may take several hours to run if the DPM server is configured to protect more than 100 SQL Server databases.
Issue 4The DPM administrator console does not open when multiple backup jobs concurrently access a tape library.
Issue 5When library sharing is enabled, the GlobalDbConnectionString registry value may point to the local computer and not to the global SQL Server installation after a post-DPM 2007 Service Pack 1 rollup is installed.
Issue 6A job may freeze before it transfers data if the DsRoleGetPrimaryDomainInformation function fails.
Issue 7The DPM administrator console may not open if the Disconnect-DPMServer PowerShell cmdlet runs during a new tape backup job.
Issue 8When DPM protects mirrored SQL Server databases that are clustered, the old volume bitmaps are not deleted. Therefore, the 128-volume bitmap limit may be exceeded.
This hotfix also includes all previously released rollups for Data Protection Manager 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1):
