higher, the page file should be set to 1.5 or 2 times the amount of RAM on the
computer. The DPM disk space requirements are as follows:

• System drive needs 1 GB free
• Disk space for protected data should be 2.5 to 3 times the size of the
protected data
DPM also needs to be on a dedicated, single purpose computer.
Software requirements
DPM has requirements of both the operating system as well as software that needs
to be on the server before DPM can be installed. Let's take a look at what these
requirements are.
Operating system
DPM 2007 can be installed on both a 32-bit and an x64-bit operating systems.
However, DPM 2010 is only supported on an x64-bit operating systems. DPM
can be installed on a Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2. It is
recommended that you install DPM 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2.
DPM can be deployed in a Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, or
Windows Server 2003 Active Directory domain. Be sure to launch the Windows
update and completely patch the server before you start the DPM installation, no
matter what operating system you decide to use. If you end up using Windows 2008
Server for your DPM deployment you will need to install some hotixes before you
start the DPM installation. The hotixes are as follows:
• FIX: You are prompted to format the volume when a formatted volume
is mounted on a NTFS folder that is located on a computer that is
running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista (KB971254) ( http:// ).
• Dynamic disks are marked as "Invalid" on a computer that is running
Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista. When you bring the disks
online, take the disks ofline, or restart the computer if Data Protection
Manager is installed (KB962975) (
fwlink/?LinkId=185942 ).
