Data Protection Manager 2010 installation [part-1]

Data Protection Manager 2010 installation step by step given blew with Screen Shot:
Pre Installation Details :
It is really a product that can backup mentioned products in best way there is, because Data Protection Manager product group at Microsoft works closely with other product groups to get the needed knowledge for recommended backup procedures. Anyway, the point of this blog post is not to describe benefits of DPM 2010, but rather to describe installation in easiest possible way. Because, if you are reading this blog post i suppose you are already somehow familiar with capabilities that DPM has.
In this blog post you can find easy step by step procedures with pictures on installing DPM 2010. I did all procedures below on one notebook on which Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 with Hyper-V role is installed. On that notebook I created one Windows Server 2008 R2 virtual machine on which DPM 2010 is installed. So if you’d like to try to install DPM at least you should have:
• 1 machine for DPM 2010 (It can be virtual or physical machine),
• 1 disk for DPM installation and 1 disk for DPM storage pool (Storage Pool is place where DPM stores backup data. It must be clean partition, and no it can’t be any USB disk. If you are using virtual machine you can add VHD as you will see later. ),
• Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 with Service Pack 1
• On machine where you are installing DPM following operating systems are supported:
• Windows Server 2008 64 bit
• Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit
• DPM installation which you can download on MSDN,
• Domain (DPM will not install if machine where you are installing it is not joined to domain. If you are using computer with Hyper-V you can configure domain on physical host, or in another virtual machine).
• If you covered all above you can start installing. In DPM 2010 installation procedure is pretty straightforward and all prerequisites will be installed using DPM setup. In previous versions you needed to install IIS role, and Single Instance Storage by yourself. Now in DPM 2010 IIS role is not needed anymore and Single Instance Storage is installed as part of your DPM setup.
Welcome part. Click Next.
Now there’s prerequisites check. First it will check for basic components, required hardware and then System Attributes (e.g. Single Instance Storage etc…). As you can see on following picure Single Instance Storage is not installed on my computer so I clicked Next , for this to be installed as part of the Setup. If you were wondering, DPM is using Single Instance Storage (SIS) for optimizing storage space.
After Setup installs Single Instance Storage, you should restart your computer.
Manually start installer again and you should see that now everything is ok with prerequisites. Click Next.
Enter your Name and Company. Click Next.

Stay with us for see next part….
