Installing DPM using a remote instance of SQL Server 2008
Installing DPM using a remote instance of
SQL Server 2008
Before you begin your installation of DPM on a remote SQL instance, there are a few
tasks you need to ensure are complete on your remote SQL Server first. These
tasks are:
• Before you install DPM, you must install a new, dedicated instance of SQL
Server 2008 SP1
• When you install the SQL Server, keep the default failure audit settings,
enable password policy checking, and assign a strong password to the SA
• Install SQL Database engine and SQL Reporting Services components only
• Make sure the remote SQL 2008 server has SP1 installed. This must also be
Standard or Enterprise Edition
• Make sure the account that you log onto the DPM server with is a domain
user and that this account is a member of the local administrators group on
the server that the remote SQL instance is on and the SQL Server sysadmin
fixed server role on the computer running the remote instance of SQL Server
• On the remote SQL Server, enable the Named Pipes protocol for the instance
that you are going to install the DPM database on
• In order for DPM to access the SQL Server through its firewall, configure an
incoming exception for sqlservr.exe for the instance that you are going to
place the DPM database on to allow port 80 on TCP protocol
NOTE : If you are installing SQL Server on Windows Server 2008 R2,
a compatibility warning might appear. Select Run program , and then
proceed with the SQL Server 2008 installation. For more information
see the following link:
By completing the above tasks your remote SQL Server should be prepared for your
DPM database. Now let's get to the installation:
Launch the DPM 2010 installer.
NOTE : You do not need to install the DPM Management Shell
because it will be installed with DPM.
