SCDPM 2012 SP1 in a LAB – Installation (Part E – Install DPM)

Recommended Posts

Install System Center Data Protection Manager

We are now finally ready to install DPM.


Install Prerequisites

To start, before we will actually be able to install SCDPM, we have to install a few prerequisites.

§ .NET Framework 3.5 SP1


Install SCDPM

Start by either extracting the DVD contents, or mounting the ISO (the TechNet ISO is currently labelled as mu_system_center_2012_data_protection_manager_with_sp1_x64_dvd_1359086.iso). Start by running the Setup.exe.


On the splash screen click the Data Protection manager link.

On the Prerequisites Check page, choose what type of database DPM will use; either a dedicated instance, or an existing instance. Basically, will it use a local SQL install or a remote install. Since we are doing this in a lab, I will choose the ‘Use the dedicated instance of SQL Server’ option, to install a local instance on the DPM server.


Make your choice and then click Check and Install.

The Prerequisites Check will check the system for any issues preventing installation. If there are issue, you will need to resolve them prior to being able to continue with the installation. Once you are able to continue, click Next.

On the Product Registration page, enter a User Name, Company, and a Product Key, then click Next. Unfortunately, I am not aware of any way to install an evaluation version of the application, although all other System Center products provide this option.

The installation will begin, and will take a while since DPM will also install SQL Server for you automatically.
