DPM – Redirected Access “Backup In Progress”

DPM - Redirected Access "Backup In Progress"

Today I had an issue where our Hyper-V Cluster Volumes were staying in Redirected Access. In this state, the CSV is available to all nodes in the cluster as part of the ClusterStorage namespace, but all nodes in the cluster except the coordinator node perform their IO via the coordinator node. The redirected access is used for example when running a backup using DPM.

As it turns out the DPM Agent running on both HyperV owners was stuck, and thus restarting the DPMRA service made sure that the volumes were back online.
