The Prerequisites Check page of the Setup Wizard for System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) scans the destination computer to verify that it meets software and hardware requirements.
Before you begin the prerequisites check, you must specify whether the DPM database will be on a dedicated instance or an existing instance of SQL Server.
If you chose to use an existing instance, the wizard will prompt for details of the instance.
Click Check and Install to begin the prerequisites check.
If the “check item failed” symbol appears for one or more required or recommended components, Setup displays one of the following:
Warning. Indicates that a recommended component is missing or noncompliant. Review the alert and determine whether to resolve the issue now or continue with the installation. If any recommended component is missing, you can click Next, and DPM will install the required prerequisite software.
Note The installer does not install Windows updates. You must download and install them yourself.
Error. Indicates that a required component is missing or noncompliant. Resolve the error, and then click Check to verify all components are installed before you continue with the installation.
When the prerequisite check is complete and all required components are present, Setup displays a confirmation, and the Next button becomes available.
