Use the Welcome page of the Setup Wizard for System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) to begin installing DPM.
Before you start the installation, verify that the DPM server meets all system requirements.
|DPM can be installed only on a partition 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. If you choose to install a prerequisite software product from a shared folder, Setup adds the network path (UNC) of the shared folder to the Internet Explorer local intranet security zone for the duration of the installation. Install from a shared folder only if the share is hosted on a trusted site.|
Throughout the installation, the DPM Setup Wizard provides updates on the installation progress. If you have questions at any point in the process, click Help.
To proceed with the installation, click Next.
