DPM could not enumerate one or more components for application – Error ID 963

By Erik Verwer

When trying to add a Primary Backup source to my Secondary DPM Server i’ve got the following Error;

Error ID: 963
DPM could not enumerate one or more components for application on protected computer .

Every where on the internet the solutions was to check the DPM Writer on the Production Server. With no succes.

On the following blog i’ve found that it could be in the name of one of the protecting members on your Primary DPM Server.

Apperently if a Protected Member has a “&” in its name dpm can’t Enumerate the data.

So i changed the name of the VM i’m protecting and finaly it works.
