Installation Settings

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager, System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

Use the Installation Settings page of the Setup Wizard for System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) to specify the folders that you want to install the DPM program and database files on.

The files can be installed only on a local drive. They cannot be installed on read-only folders, hidden folders, or directly on local Microsoft Windows folders, such as Documents and Settings, Windows NT, or Program Files. (However, the files can be installed on a subfolder in the Program Files folder.)

The installation partition must be formatted with the NTFS file system. To ease recovery if a boot partition failure occurs, install DPM on a partition that is separate from the boot partition.

This page contains the elements described in the following table.



Name Description

Change (DPM program files section)

Click to change the default DPM program files installation location.

Change (SQL Server settings section)

Click to change the default installation location for the DPM database.

Space Requirements section

Displays space availability on the specified destination drives. If you choose to change the installation folders, verify that the selected drives have enough space for the installation.

After you enter your installation settings information, click Next.
