Installing DPM 2007

Updated: November 1, 2008

Applies To: Data Protection Manager, System Center Data Protection Manager 2007

A System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 installation is comprised of two primary tasks: installing the DPM prerequisite software and installing the DPM application. The DPM Setup Wizard guides you through the process of specifying the DPM installation settings, and automatically installs or provides links to install the prerequisite software as part of the integrated DPM installation process.

This section includes the following:

  • System requirements for the DPM server.

  • Instructions for specifying the non-default settings when installing the operating system before installing DPM.

  • Step-by-step instructions for installing DPM.

If you want to use retail copies of one or more of the prerequisite products for your DPM installation, or if the automatic installation of one or more of the DPM prerequisite software products fails, you can use the information in this topic to help you install the prerequisite software manually.
