Setup prerequisites

Updated: August 13, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Data Protection Manager

DPM needs the following prerequisites installed. They’re installed automatically as part of setup

  • Microsoft .NET Framework. DPM 2012 R2 requires at least .NET Framework 4.0. DPM 2012 and 2012 with SP1 require at least 3.5 with SP1.

  • Windows Installer 4.5 or later versions

  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable

  • Windows PowerShell. DPM 2012 R2 requires PowerShell 3.0. DPM 2012 and 2012 with sP1 requires PowerShell 2.0.

  • Microsoft Application Error Reporting

  • Windows Single Instance Store (SIS)

Setup installs all these automatically but if you do need to install any of these manually:

  • .NET Framework—Can be installed using Add Features in Server Manager.

  • Windows Installer 4.5—Installed as part of the operating system, but can also be installed from DPM setup. To do this, navigate to <root directory>DPM2012\setup\redist\WindowsInstaller and run INSTMSI45.EXE as an Administrator.

  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable— Can be installed from DPM setup. To do this, go to <root directory>\Redist\vcredist and run vcredist_x64.exe as an Administrator. It can also be downloaded from Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64).

  • Windows PowerShell—PowerShell 2.0 is included in Windows Server 2008 R2. PowerShell 3.0 is included in Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2.

  • Microsoft Application Error Reporting—Can be installed from DPM setup. <root directory>DPM2012\setup\redist and run dw20sharedamd64.msi.as an Administrator.

  • Windows Single Instance Store (SIS)—Install as follows:

    1. From an elevated command prompt on the DPM server, run the following to install the SIS limited feature (including the SIS filter driver):

      • In Windows Server 2008 R2 type:

        start /wait ocsetup.exe SIS-Limited /quiet /norestart
        
      • In Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 type:

        dism /online /enable-feature:SIS-Limited
        
      The service name is case sensitive so be sure to type SIS-Limited otherwise installation will fail. You’ll need to restart the server after installed.
