Protection Agent Installation Error (Error 313, 0x80070643)


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)

error 313, 0x800070643, DPM agent installation error, DPM agent wizard installation error, Install protection agent failed

How To Convert Physical to VHD

If you do not have the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) to help you to convert the Physical Machine Hard Disk, then you can use another tool from the SYSINTERNALS .

To download this tool from the Microsoft Technet click Disk2vhd v1.63

Hope this helps as it has helped me.
