DPM recovery point failing

So I have never seen this error before.  I am trying to backup exchange and I am getting the following error: DPM was not able to complete this job within the allotted time. (ID 911).

It looks like the job will run for 20 hours and then stop.

DPM is running on a 2012 server and I believe DPM is on UR3.

Any help is appreciated!  Google does not seem to have the answer.

Sometimes this happens when backup threads are hung. You can try stopping the DPM services and see if any threads are running and force quit them alternatively a reboot will flush everything for you. Just a thought...

Thanks.  I will try that.  It's weird as every time this recovery point runs it fails at 20 hours.

It failed in 8 hours after the server reboot.

I had contacted Microsoft on this.  The issue was with the eseutil timing out.  Ran the exchange backup without it and then enabled it again and it is running fine now.

Nothing in the logs on this either.  Very vague and weird error as this exchange backup was working without issue for a while.
