Re: HP Data protector express - error 2

I tried to do many different backup process, but evryone stopped with error 2.
I wander if it could depend on access rights but should not; in-fact user "Admin" can see and select avery file and folder into the server file system.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Same error here, with Windows Server 2008 R2. I already try everything, but never found a solution.

HP Data Protector Express sucks...

Re: HP Data protector express - error 2

I found resolution to this problem on some other thread. The problem is that on HP server there is a small partition without assigned drive letter. Just go to drive management and assign a letter to this partition. Any letter will do and no restart is necessary. Since Ive done that, I have no problem with backup.

Hi everyone,

 

Windows 2008 R2 is not a supported OS for Data Protector Express 4.x version and that is the reason for the "Error 2 --> End of Data" was seen every time you try to use.

 

The support matrix available at http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storage/software/datapexp/pdf/DPXMatrix_0310.pdf is clarifing that

 

Windows 2008 R2 is supported by DPX 5.x expected to release this month.

 

Regards

this aparrantely supports it but trying to obtain the updated certs is a royal pain, no relevant info on how to do it or what website portal to go to.

 

google 4AA0-7937ENW.pdf for a dpx 5 product guide

Re: HP Data protector express - error 2

I was stuck on this also with new install of ultrium 3000 w/P212-zm controller on 2008R2.  After reading comments added drive letter to 2008 repair partition and PRESTO!  backup runs.  I must add, i went through firmware update on both controller and ultrium drive and all windows updates, which is generally a good idea on new install, but was a pain in the arse.

 

There was an ADDITIONAL problem, the status stuck at 6% on the status screen for 50 minutes.  the log screen showed completed.  After completion, the time counter reset to 38 minutes even thought the status screen still showed 6% after 50 minutes.  Finally, log screen showed all stats as unavailable for status selected completed and failed.  The report during showed 1 item failure, but it never printed into log. 

 

So, the 4.0 sp1 with the drive letter assigned to the recovery drive DID make backup with the above errors.  I tested a small restore to verify.  OBVIOUSLY there are still errors in the software for R2, and making 5.0 findable is critical.  At least I have a backup while that goes on!
