This alert is generated when the replica for a specific data source on a specified computer is not created and you have chosen to create the replica manually. All subsequent protection activities for this data on the specified computer will fail until the replica is created and synchronized with a consistency check.


When you created the protection group in the Create New Protection Group Wizard or DPM Management Shell, you chose to manually copy the data to the DPM server to create the replica.


The error conditions and recommended actions associated with each “Manual replica creation pending” alert are provided in the alert details.

  1. Manually copy data to the specified replica path.

  2. After you copy the data, synchronize with a consistency check.

Resolved when: A verification task starts, and a "replica inconsistent, verification in progress" alert is raised.

For more information about synchronization with a consistency check, see How to Modify Protection Options.
