To start protecting data after you have installed Data Protection Manager (DPM), you must perform a series of required configuration tasks. You can also configure optional DPM features at this time, or you can wait and configure optional features at any time after DPM has been deployed. The “Getting started” help topics provide instructions for performing each of the required and optional configuration tasks.
If you exit DPM Administrator Console before completing the required configuration tasks, you can open the console later and resume the configuration process. DPM keeps track of the configuration tasks that you have already performed.
