After installing Update Rollup 3 for System Center 2012 Data Protection Manager you notice that the DPM database grows and eventually the DPM console will crash.
|On one of the days when this didn't happen, the dpm system becomes unresponsive around 2-3am and all the jobs just pile up. By restarting the server or killing the DPM service will correct the blockage and as above the Sharepoint catalogue fails to complete. If I run the powershell to create the Catalogue nanually, the server again becomes unresponsive. This has all happen after Rollup 3 was installed. It is very clear that when DPM runs the Sharepoint Catalogue job, something starts to go wrong.|
This is fixed in SP1 but there’s an alternate workaround here:
