You can use the Protection Agent Installation Wizard to install protection agents that are located outside of a firewall, and you can manually install protection agents on computers that are located behind a firewall, or that are located in a workgroup or a domain that does not have a two-way trust relationship with the domain that the System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) server is located in. After you install a protection agent manually, you then need to attach the agent in DPM Administrator Console to enable protection. To install protection agents on computers that are located behind a firewall, see Installing Protection Agents on Computers Behind a Firewall. To install protection agents on computers that are in a workgroup or a domain that does not have a two-way trust relationship with the domain that the DPM server is located in, see Installing Protection Agents on Computers in a Workgroup or Untrusted Domain.
If you are installing a protection agent and encounter network-related or permissions-related issues because of domain policies, we recommend that you install the protection agent manually. For information about manually installing a protection agent, see Installing Protection Agents Manually.
For information about installing a protection agent by using a server image on the computer without specifying the DPM server, see Installing Protection Agents Using a Server Image.
