Changes to the configuration of a DPM protection group can result in the cancellation of some active jobs. A change could affect replica jobs, archive jobs, or both. The following table lists the jobs that are canceled in each category.

Job types

 

Replica jobs Archive jobs
  • Replica creation

  • Synchronization

  • Create recovery point on disk

  • Recovery from disk

  • Create recovery point on tape

  • Verification of data on tape

  • Copy data to tape

The following table lists how protection group changes can cause the cancelation of active jobs. Jobs can be canceled for:

  • All members of the protection group ("protection group")

  • All data sources on the protected computer ("protected computer")

  • All protected computers in the same time zone as the computer hosting the data sources in the protection group that is changed ("time zone")
