DPM 2012 R2 - Status report not complete

Hi Experts,

I'm running DPM in System Center 2012 R2 and my daily backup status report is not working 100%.

The reports themselves run, but this section pictured below always has these generic errors.

DPM report error
I've checked event viewer on the server where the DPM is running and the SQL server where I think the reports are generated from and I cannot find any errors to troubleshoot.

Can I get some help in tracking down where to fix this?

It is possible that there are no failures to report...  I read that report section as stating that there were:

1. no instances to report for "Common Recovery Point Creation Failures - On Disk" that occurred more than 5 times
2. no errors to report for "All Recovery Point Creations Failures - On Tape"
3. no errors to report for "All Recovery Failures"

Are you seeing any alerts in the DPM Console?  Are all your Protection Groups green?  Are there any Critical or Warning items under the Data Source Health tree on the upper left of the console?

I just reviewed my DPM reports the last 2 weeks and I get the same view indicating there were no error to report in the requested time frame.

So...it looks fine.

So what I'm seeing here is a list, that is actually 0 items long, that helpfully lists the error code reference hyperlink?

That'd explain why I cant find any reporting errors; there are none to report.

Thanks Dan.
