If you already have it installed, you might experience one or both of the following problems:
Problem-1) Updating agents via the DPM console result in the following error:
Agent operation failed. (ID: 370)
The protection agent installation failed because the files needed to install the protection agent (version 4.0.1920.0) are missing from the PS.Domain.com DPM server. (ID: 317)
Problem-2) Creating a new PG or modifying an existing PG fails with: ERROR 1004
The System Center 2012 Sp1 UR3 package for DPM was re-released on 8-20-13 and fixes the above two issues. You can simply install the new UR3 re-released package available here:
The new DPM version will now be 4.1.3417.0 after applying this update.
IMPORTANT NOTE: After Installing UR3 - Please read the following article if you are protecting Sharepoint farm with DPM 2012.

Update Rollup 3 for System Center Data Protection Manager 2012 (KB2751230)
After you upgrade System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 to System Center Data Protection Manager 2012, the tape management report does not display overdue tapes.
System Center Data Protection Manager 2012 Client Protection does not scale to the limits that are expected.
When you try to specify a client computer name in the DPMServerName attribute by using Windows PowerShell, Windows PowerShell crashes.
When the name of a Microsoft SharePoint site collection contains a space, and you perform a SharePoint item-level recovery operation in System Center Data Protection Manager 2012, the operation fails.
After you rename a SharePoint site in System Center Data Protection Manager 2012, you cannot restore the site.
The SharePoint Recovery Point Status Report displays incorrect data in System Center Data Protection Manager 2012.
A bare metal recovery fails in certain situations.
Please be aware that if you installs either of the following WMI updates on a DPM 2010 server, that some DPM power shell scripts may no longer work.
Some scripts will fail with an ArgumentOutOfrangeException. I believe that Pruneshadowcopies2010.ps1 is one such script that will fail which result in recovery points not getting deleted.

System Center DPM 2012 is not supported running on Windows Server 2012. We have had reports of DPM 2012 console crashes when navigating to the recovery tab if DPM 2012 is installed on Windows server 2012. This issue is fixed in System Center 2012 SP1 which supports being installed on Windows 2012 operating system.
If you are already in this condition, you have two options:
A) You can upgrade to System Center 2012 Sp1.
B) You can backup the DPMDB, rebuild the DPM server using Windows 2008 R2 install DPM 2012, then restore your current database. The process is explained in the below technet article.
Recovering DPM servers
We also do not support protecting Windows Server 2012 workloads using SCS DPM 2012, you must upgrade to DPM 2012 Sp1. Please do not expect any support for DPM 2012 running on Windows Server 2012, or issues while protecting data sources in Windows Server 2012.
