Manually Installing Prerequisite Software

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 requires a SQL Server 2008 SP1 instance for the DPM database. During setup, you can choose to have DPM Setup install SQL Server on the DPM server, or you can specify a remote SQL Server instance to use with DPM.

For step-by–step instructions on how to manually install and configure a remote instance of SQL Server 2008 for DPM, see Installing DPM Using a Remote Instance of SQL Server 2008.

Using a remote SQL Server instance requires that the DPM support files is installed on the remote computer. For step-by-step instructions, see the “To manually install the DPM support files” procedure later in this topic.

Depending on which supported operating system you use, there are updates that you must apply before installing DPM. For a list of the supported operating systems, the required updates for each, and links that you can use to download and install the updates, see DPM Server Software Prerequisites.

DPM Setup automatically installs the prerequisites in the following table. If you need to manually install one or more of the prerequisites, you can use the procedures and links in this topic.
