The operation failed because of a protection agent failure. (ID 998 Details: No more data is on the tape (0x80070450))

For the past couple of days I have been getting the following alert on my tape backups:
Cannot verify tape data.
The operation failed because of a protection agent failure. (ID 998 Details: No more data is on the tape (0x80070450))
It has completed the backup but I get this error when performing a verify or when I try and restore.
This error only occurs on the same server we backup in the protection group. The other 5 servers backup fine.
We are using DPM 2010 (3.0.8195.0)

Same here.
When I came back from vacation I found the same error in our DPM 2012.
The operation failed because of a protection agent failure. (ID 998 Details: No more data is on the tape (0x80070450))
I cannot find anything in the eventlog saying that the tapelibrary has been offline.
How can I check that?
Last nights tape-job went "almost" well, one server (VM) still has this error. (But I dont know if that depends on the fact that it had status "Missing" in hyper-v manager due to a Win-update shutdown on a host that had a  misconfiguration (auto-reebot).)
I rebooted the DPM-server this morning and then I tried to manually run all tapejobs again but they get this status again.
I do not understand this error and why it suddenly appears to work again for a scheduled job but not when I trigger the job manually.
Is there not a solution for this?

  • The operation failed because of a protection agent failure. (ID 998 Details: The system cannot find the path specified (0x80070003))

    Hello,
    We are getting the following error when trying to backup our fileserver (DPM 2012 R2) to tape.
    "The operation failed because of a protection agent failure. (ID 998 Details: The system cannot find the path specified (0x80070003))"
    What is interesting:
    - The "Short-Term Protection" to disk runs successfully without error
    - The "Long-Term Protection" to tape fails after writing ~2TB of data to a TL2000 tape loader. (Always appears to fail towards end of job with the above error)
    - In the past (until roughly a month ago) the tape portion of this job was completing successfully.
    The DPM logs fail to give much information around the time of error regarding any failures. Likewise windows event logs give no hint of a problem when the job fails.
    Looking for any ideas that may help resolve this.
    Cheers!

    Hi
    Has it just started happening? What rollup version are you on currently?

  • The operation failed because of a protection agent failure. (ID 998 Details: The semaphore timeout period has expired (0x80070079))

    Recently we got this error, while backup to tape, and no idea what is it.
    What cause of this error?
    The operation failed because of a protection agent failure. (ID 998 Details: The semaphore timeout period has expired (0x80070079)

    Hi,
    Try this workaround, increase the TcpMaxDataRetransmissions to 10 or more.
    How to modify the TCP/IP maximum retransmission timeout
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/170359
    Diagnostic steps when "Semaphore timeout" is hit during network transfer:
    1. Check if the protected server (sender) or DPM (receiver) was under stress or inaccessible during the time of failure – from event logs from both the machines. Retry should work if the packet loss was because of either of the servers being inaccessible
    or under stress for a period.
    2. Check if the network between the PS and the DPM is flaky – retransmit count from ‘netstat –s’ or perfmon counters can give an idea.
    3. Else contact network support engineer to diagnose the packet loss issue – netmon captures from both machines, packet route and network layout/devices will be required to start the investigation.
    4. Take some performance monitor logs on both DPM and Proteted server side.
    Some good and basic perfmon counters to take to see if the servers are under stress are below.

    I have seen similar threads that suggest this is a known issue with this version of Acrobat but I would like conformation from Adobe that this is a known issue and whether it is fixed in a newer version?
    Adobe Acrobat version 10.1.13
    SharePoint 2010

    Hi quodd,,
    We are sorry for the issue being faced by you. I need some information from you so that I take further steps:
    1. Which Adobe product are you using Acrobat or Adobe reader- what is the complete version?
    2. How are you opening and saving the PDF, the exact workflow?
         Are you doing it from within Adobe Reader/Acrobat application or opening it from browser, doing changes and saving it using browser itself.
    3. Can you try to save a PDF to library with Custom template and managed metadata columns using browser directly.
    4. Please verify that columns name do not contain spaces or some other special characters.
       Can you try to save PDF to library with Custom template and just a single managed metadata column  with a simple name
    Thanks,
    Nikhil Gupta

  • Newsfeed error - The operation failed because the server could not access the distributed cache.

    Recently installed SharePoint 2013 RTM, on the newsfeed page an error is displayed, and no entries display in the following or everyone tabs.
    "The operation failed because the server could not access the distributed cache."
    Reading through various posts, I've checked:
    - Activity feeds and mentions tabs are working as expected.
    - User Profile Service is operational and syncing as expected
    - Search is operational and indexing as expected
    - The farm was installed based on the autospinstaller scripts.
    - Don't believe this to be a permissions issue, during testing added accounts to the admin group to verify
    Any suggestions are welcomed, thanks.

  • Azure Backup fails with error 0x003E6 after data transmission (Protection Agent Failure)

    On a Windows Essentials 2012 Server (German) I had Azure Backup up and running for several months.
    (Probably) After adding features to support Remote Access, Azure Backup stopped working.
    The backup schedule executes and transfers all data, than it constantly fails with the error:
    "Fehler beim Vorgang aufgrund eines Schutz-Agent-Fehlers. Wiederholen Sie den Vorgang (0x003E6)" which translates to the english "The operation failed because of a protection agent failure. Retry the operation (0x003E6)".
    An update of the Backup Agent to the latest version did not resolve the issue.
    Does anybody know details about this error and the reason behind it?
    Regards,
    Dominik

    Hi Dominik,
    First please check if there is any new policy was set such as a throttle for uploading data, or a firewall was enabled before the issue occurs. 
    There is no enough information for finding out the exact cause. Please also check if there is any error and event logs. These can be found in the Application Event log under WindowsAzureBackup.
    Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help and un-mark them if they provide no help. If you have feedback for TechNet Support, contact [email protected]

  • Protection Agent failure error during backup to tape with DPM 2010.

    DPM TechNet Forum,
    We are experiencing an intermittent error when backing up to tape using DPM 2010 (with latest QFE roll-up applied).
    "The operation failed because of a protection agent failure. (ID 998 Details: The device is not connected (0x8007048F))"
    Any idea what could be causing this error?
    Thanks in advance,
    Joe

    Hi,
    You can try to reproduce the problem outside of DPM using some external utilities.  If you have more than one drive in the library, run the test against both drives simultaneously to simulate multiple backup jobs running.  If you get an error
    before the tape fills you can use net helpmsg errorcode to see what the error was.
    Download the DPMerasetape.zip file from the following link and extract to c:\temp folder.

    I have checked the cluster node this particular SQL instance is running on using Perfmon and the machine is nowhere near capacity on CPU, memory, network, or Disk I/O.  I have failed this SQL Application to another node in the cluster and
    receive the same error (this other node has another clustered SQL application on it that is actively running as well as backing up fine).  The only thing that I am aware of that has changed is that we installed SP2 for SQL 2008 about 2 weeks prior
    to when the failures started to occur.  However, we updated all six clustered SQL Instances at the same time and only this one is having this issue so I don't believe that caused the problem.  We are running SQL 2008 SP2 (version 10.0.4000.0)
    on all clustered instances along with DPM 2010 (version 3.0.7696.0) on this particular DPM server that has the issue.
    One last thing, I have also noticed errors in the event log pertaining to the same SQL backups that are failing (but the time stamps are not concurrent with each backup attempt):

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Don't know if this helps or not, but I also noticed another peculiar issue that is derived from this problem.  If I go to "Modify protection group", then expand the cluster, then expand all six nodes in the cluster, five of them show "All SQL Servers"
    and allow me to expand the SQL Instance and show all databases; the one that is having a problem backing up, when I expand the node, doesn't even show that SQL exists on the node, when in fact, it does.
    I would also like to add that the databases on this node that will not backup are running fine.  They run hundreds of transactions daily so we know SQL itself is OK.  Even though it is a busy SQL Server, there is plenty of available resources as
    the SQL buffer and memory counters show the node is not under durress.

  • The NLS operation failed because the registry key Control Panel\International\User Profile cannot be opened. Error code is 2. Error message: The system cannot find the file specified.

    H,
    Since upgrading Windows server 2008 R2 to Server 2012 Standard edition, we get this repetitious critical error in the event log:
    Event 1001
    Op Code NLS initialization
    The NLS operation failed because the registry key Control Panel\International\User Profile cannot be opened. Error code is 2. Error message: The system cannot find the file specified.
    We originally found that the regional date settings after changing them in regional settings (DD/MM/YYYY) and they did not inherit properly from the upgrade but they are ok now. 
    I've looked at HKCU\.Default\Control Panel\International and nothing looks obviously wrong. Country codes, time & date formats are correct.
    How do we ascertain the  cause of this error and the specific registry key that might be problematic?

    Hi,
    This could be caused by firewall rules or security softwares.
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/242579-44-hkcu-control-panel-international-opened
    And in addition, the fix is worth a try.
    Nothing happens when you double-click "Region" in Control Panel

  • HELP! FLASH CS6 "The export operation failed because it ran out of memory"

    Hey guys, really need your help on this one. I can't seem to export my flash animation video. It kept failing and prompting that "The export operation failed because it ran out of memory"
    Anyone knows a solution to this. It will be very much appreciated.
    Thank you very much.

    Hi,
    It totally depends on what's the content you are trying to export. The reason is as simple as it says. The content might be really huge that it ran out of memory. Any info you can provide on the kind of stuff you have in the file?

  • Flash CS6, QuickTime: The export operation failed because it ran out of memory.

    Exporting a QuickTime movie file seems to be an old issue with previous versions too. In CS6 I always get the error message: "The export operation failed because it ran out of memory." I've got tons of memory and have allocated increasing amounts to the cache with no success.
    My small and fairly simple file was created with Flash CS5 which seemed to work fine at the time of creation. I've tried everything recommended online but with no luck so far. BTW, I reinstalled CS5 and tried that too but it just hangs now, and there's no error message.
    Does anyone have a solution?
    (OS X 10.7.4)

    If I may join this discussion...  I loaded up CS6 two days ago and have just completed my first 60 second animation using it.  Like everybody else here, it all went fine until I tried to export it to QuickTime – something that has never been problematic before. 
    I ended up exporting it as a swf and opening that in CS4.  Then I could export it, but the resulting QuickTime movie was over 500 MB in size!  Okay, so then I opened it in QuickTime Pro and exported it from there.  This brought the file size down to a far more reasonable 35 MB, but now the soundtrack has gone!  So now I am having to replace the sound in Final Cut Pro. 
    This is a real palaver – and not conducive to heaping praise on CS6 when questioned.  I note that there is talk of Adobe rectifying this "bug", but it would be really good to hear from somebody at Adobe with:
    a) An apology
    b) An estimated time of delivery
    c) A best practice work round
    But I'm guessing that anybody that works at Adobe will be the last person to read this...

  • The photoshop library operation failed because quicktime is not installed on this computer

    I'm getting this when importing a Photoshop Timeline Animation into After Effects.
    "The photoshop library operation failed because quicktime is not installed on this computer"
    I have all updates to date.
    Any clues?

    After Effects CC (12.x) does not import animation/video layers in PSD files. You should render and export your animation from Photoshop as a movie file and import that into After Effects.

  • The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation network issue

    Hi
    I run some windows (2008 r2) servers on the cloud. A couple of servers are reporting a red x in the system tray where the network icon is, and my network adapter has disappeared.Using ipconfig /renew I get:
    The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation"
    There isn't really more info I can provide. All servers on static private IPs.
    Thanks

    Hi GSS1,
    Thanks for update.
    So can we still verify and get information of this missing NIC form device management console on server ? can we still get the NIC by command “netsh interface show interface” ?
    what was the latest modification we performed before this issue occurred ? Is there any error or warring event shown in the event viewer ?
    Have we installed Hyper-V on this server host ?
    We have a KB article that described a similar issue and some methods to verify and resolve this issue on Windows 2003 and XP platform and we may try it and see if that will help:
    How to troubleshoot missing network connections icons in Windows Server 2003 and in Windows XP
