A System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 installation includes two primary tasks: installing the DPM prerequisite software and installing the DPM application. The DPM Setup Wizard guides you through the process of specifying the DPM installation settings, and automatically installs the prerequisite software as part of an integrated DPM installation process.
Important Note: DPM 2010 is not supported on the Turkish language version of Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
If the automatic installation of one or more of the DPM prerequisite software products fails, you can install the prerequisite software manually.
Before installing DPM, note the following:
- All computers that you use for your DPM installation must meet at least the minimum hardware and software requirements.
- DPM Setup stops the Removable Storage service before installing DPM.
- After you install DPM, you must perform a series of required configuration tasks before you can start protecting your data.
A single DPM 2010 server can protect:
- 100 production servers
- 1,000 Windows clients
- 2,000 SQL databases
- 25TB SharePoint farms containing 1M items
- 40TB Exchange databases
In the following video tutorial, we will look at how to install DPM 2010 Server and configure it for Exchange Server 2010.
