Updated: April 1, 2012

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Data Protection Manager

The topics in this section provide step-by-step instructions on how to upgrade to System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) from System Center 2012 – Data Protection Manager (DPM) Release Candidate (RC).

You can do an in-place upgrade to DPM on a computer that is already running DPM RC. If you want to use a different instance of SQL Server for your DPM database, uninstall Remote SQL Prep tool that was installed with DPM RC from the SQL Server and follow the instruction at Upgrading the DPM Database.

If you are using a remote instance of SQL Server, you cannot move to using a local instance.
