Upgrade the DPM server.

Upgrade as follows:

  2. Run Setup.exe on the DPM server and select Data Protection Manager from the Setup page and follow the wizard.

Note the following:

  • Setup adds firewall exceptions for port 6075 to enable a scoped DPM Administrator console.

  • Setup adds the DPMSCOM group to Windows groups.

  • Setup adds the MSDPM Trusted Users group to Windows groups.

  3. On the primary server, start the Setup Wizard, complete the upgrade, and then restart the computer.
