When backing up my SharePoint farm, I get the following warning:

Affected area:      Sharepoint Farm\DCSQL01\SharePoint_Configuration
Occurred since:      4/24/2009 3:46:53 PM
Description:      DPM failed to obtain catalog information as part of the backup for SharePoint Farm Sharepoint Farm\DCSQL01\SharePoint_Configuration on webserver.cedpa.org. Your recovery point is valid, but you will be unable to perform item-level recoveries using this recovery point. (ID 3103)
Recommended action:      1) If you do not expect to be performing item-level restores using this recovery point, then dismiss this alert; otherwise, take the recommended actions in the subsequent steps.
2) If the operation failed for a short-term backup to disk, in the Protection task area, select the data source and click Create recovery point to restart the backup.
3) If the operation failed for a short-term backup to tape, in the Protection task area, select all the failed data sources that belong to the same protection group, and click Create recovery point  tape. This will ensure that the tape backups are located on the same tape.
4) Dismiss this alert immediately after starting your backup.
Resolution:      DPM automatically changes this alert's status to inactive 10 days after it is issued.To dismiss the alert, click below

I've found this on the net:

I raised a Microsoft call and got this fixed. The cause of the problem was a
corrupt site collection in SharePoint. After removing the content database
containing the corrupt site collection from SharePoint Central Administration
and readding it (refresh config DB), it removed the corrupt site collection
and DPM not longer reports this error and site and item level restores are
now possible.

You can try to check that or contact Microsoft.
