DPM 2012 R2 and SQL 2014 Installation error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm in a big trouble. I cannot install DPM 2012 R2 with SQL 2014. I got this error:

    "DPM Setup is unable to connect to the specified instance of SQL Server Reporting Service" ID: 33431.

    My SQL connection is normal. I have SCOM, SCCM and SCVMM on my network using this instance.

    When I look the DPM setup log I find this:

    DPM tries to connecto with v11 (SQL Server 2012) version. My SQL version is 2014, with v12.


    Meu SQL é 2014 portanto é v12:

    Can somebody help me please?

  • Hi,

    Support for SQL Server 2014 as DPMDB

    DPM 2012 R2 Update Rollup 4 added support for protecting SQL Server 2014 as a workload. With DPM 2012 R2 UR6 release, you can now use SQL Server 2014 as a DPM configuration database so that you can host your DPM 2012 R2 Update Rollup 6 servers on SQL Server 2014.

    Because the support for SQL Server 2014 as a DPM database is added in Update Rollup 6, the release version of DPM 2012 R2 will not install on SQL Server 2014. To upgrade to SQL Server 2014, follow these steps:
    1. Install the release version of DPM 2012 R2 on SQL Server 2012.
    2. Upgrade DPM to Update Rollup 6.
    3. Upgrade SQL Server to SQL Server 2014.
