System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 requires a SQL Server 2008 SP1 instance for the DPM database. During setup, you can choose to have DPM Setup install a dedicated SQL Server instance on the DPM server, or you can specify a remote SQL Server instance.

The topics in this section provide step-by-step instructions for installing and configuring a remote instance of SQL Server 2008 SP1, and for installing and configuring DPM to use that instance.
