System Center Data Protection 2016

SC-SQL – IP: 10.45.1.200
SC-DPM – IP: 10.45.1.201

Problem:

Installing DPM and connecting it to remote SQL, I’ve got error 812

System Center DPM 2016 Install Error ID: 812

Report configuration failed. Verify that SQL Server Reporting Services is installed properly and that it is running. ID: 812 . When installing Data Protection Manager DPM  common installation error system admins encounter is ID: 812. This is caused by the SQL Server Reporting Services misreading the reporting database.

 

Cause:

Changed account which runs service: Reporting Service

 

Resolution:

Start -> Reporting Services Configuration Manager -> Encryption Keys -> Delete Encrypted Content (click: Delete) -> Change (click: Change) – generates new encryption keys :)

 

Now you may resume installation of DPM :)

Problem:

Restore >1GB database dump;

  • phpmyadmin – too slow, errors, php.ini modifications etc.
  • mysqldump – slow, errors ex. BLOB

 

Solution:

  • create empty database, for example by phpmyadmin
  • connect to it:

mysql -u usertest -p databasetest

  • type path to db dump:

source /backup/databasetest_2017-10-01.sql

 

Output:

You will see progress like:

Query OK, 7146 rows affected (0.42 sec)
Records: 7146 Duplicates: 0 Warnings: 0

 

 

Problem:

The connection cannot be completed because the remote computer that was reached is not the one you specified. This could be caused by an outdated entry in the DNS cache. Try using the IP address of the computer instead of the name.


Solution:

Time difference. Sync clock :)
