On occasion it maybe necessary to forcefully remove a server from the DPM management console. Maybe you have taken the server out of use without first uninstalling the DPM client through the console or have some kind of weird issue with the server you are protecting.

Regardless if you want to force remove a server from the DPM management console it has to be done through good old PowerShell (there is no way in the UI to do this).

The instructions you need to do this are in the screenshot series below

    How do you force the delete of active protection for on the protected computer if that computer doesn”‘t answer?

    When I launche the command, it says:
    “Delete any active protection for this protecter computer and then retry the operation”

    Ye, when I try to remove the server from the protection group, it says: DPM cannot browse server because access is denied
