How do I read the DPM info in this case?
Monitoring says Failed but Protection shows Ok while having a Latest recovery point from last year.

Under Monitoring tab I have Failed for

Source                     | Computer     | Protection group | Start time
Computer\System Protection | MyServerName | Recovery point   | 2014-06-09 19:00:00

which shows me that something happened last night.

But under Protection tab everything is green.
Here I have

Protection group member            |                     | Protection status
Protection group ..name..
    Computer: MyServerName
        Computer\System protection   Bare metal recovery   OK
        ... Latest recovery point: 2013-12-12 06:32:54

My guess is that backup failed last night once, but succeeded later. It then found out that there hasn't been any change since sometime last year and leave it be and flags Ok.
