3.0.7707.0 Update Agent Install Issues RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I recently updated to 3.0.7707.0 and had issues updating my workgroup agents. Come to find out, Microsoft put the agents in a different folder. They are now located under DPM\agents\RA instead of ProtectionAgents\RA

    Hopefully this will save someone hours of headaches :)

  • HI,

    DPM hotfixes always placed the new agents under the Program Files\Microsoft dpm\DPM\agents\RA folder - so that is not a new location.  The confusion is because in DPM 2010, the RTM agents are in the ProtectionAgents\RA folder.   So if you were use to DPM 2007, the location remains the same for updating the agents.

    The KB article for the DPM 2010 update http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2465832 does accuratly document the correct location if you need to install / update them manually.
