Recently had issue in deploying the DPM 2012 agent to protect an old Windows Server 2003 client.
|DPM Server||DPM 2012 SP1|
|Protected Client||Windows 2003 SP2|
After going through the DPM Installation Wizard, the error came up as follow :
After some troubleshooting, found out that in order for the DPM 2012 SP1 to protect the Windows 2003 SP2, one of the pre-requisite is at least .NET 2.0 Framework. The package can be downloaded from Microsoft website.
One other DPM pre-requisite is the Visual C++ Redistributable Package (have 2 versions – 64bit and 32bits depending on the OS)
