SYMPTOMS

After you install Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager Service Pack 1 on a computer that is running an x64-based version of Windows Server 2003, a replica may be listed as inconsistent. Additionally, if you open the Data Protection Manager 2007 Administrator Console, you may see the following message:
Affected area: C:
Occurred since: 1/07/2008 4:13:00 PM
Description: The replica of Volume C:\ on servername.domainname.com is inconsistent with the protected data source. All protection activities for data source will fail until the replica is synchronized with consistency check. You can recover data from existing recovery points, but new recovery points cannot be created until the replica is consistent (ID 3106)

Changes for Volume C:\ on servername.domainname.com cannot be applied to \\?\Volume{b071dcc8-8a9e-11dd-901d-806e6f6e6963}\WINDOWS\Debug\UserMode\ChkAcc.bak\.
(ID 112 Details: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect (0x8007007B))

Recommended action: Synchronize with consistency check.
Run a synchronization job with consistency check...
Resolution: To dismiss the alert, click below
Inactivate alert
If you run a consistency check, the protection status is listed as OK. However, when the next synchronization job runs, the protection status changes to Replica is inconsistent.

Installation Instructions

To install this update, follow these steps:
  1. Install the update on the server that is running System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 SP1. To do this, run the DataProtectionManager2007-KB961502(x64).exe file on the server.

    Note You do not have to restart the server after you install the update.
  2. In the Data Protection Manager Administrator Console, update the protection agents on the protected computers. To do this, take one of the following actions:
    1. Update the protection agents from the Data Protection Manager Administrator Console. To do this, follow these steps:
      1. Open the Data Protection Manager Administrator Console.
      2. Click the Management tab, and then click the Agents tab.
      3. On the Protected Computer list, select a computer, and then click Update on the Action pane.
      4. Click Yes, and then click Update Agents.
      5. In the Enter Credentials and Reboot option dialog box, type your credentials, select the Manually restart the selected servers later option, and then click OK.

        Note Although the agent management UI of the System Center Data Protection Manager server states that you must restart the protected computer to update the agent, you do not have to take this action. (You can update the System Center Data Protection Manager UI to resolve this conflict.)
    2. Update the protection agents on the protected computers. To do this, follow these steps:
      1. Obtain the appropriate update protection agent package from the following directory on the Data Protection Manager 2007 server:
        Data Protection Manager installation location\DPM\Agents\RA\2.0.8811.0
        The update protection agent package files are as follows:
        • For x86-based systems
          I386\ Language ID \DPMAgentInstaller_KB961502.exe
        • For x64-based systems
          Amd64\ Language ID \DPMAgentInstaller_KB961502_AMD64.exe
      2. Run the appropriate update protection agent package on each protected computer.
      3. On the Data Protection Manager 2007 server, open the Data Protection Manager Administrator Console.
      4. Click the Management tab, and then click the Agents tab.
