  • Take a look at this : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb870935.aspx

    This applies to DPM 2010 but can be used for DPM 2012.

    To silently install the protection agent, run DpmAgentInstaller.exe /q <DPM server name>.

    Just take the agent sources, create a package with these. Then create a program in SCCM that will launch the previously shown command ( DpmAgentInstaller.exe /q <DPM server name>).

  • I am trying to add this as a Task Sequence in SCCM 2012 but am unable to get it to work.  I followed the link above, tested it out in a dos prompt and it works.  But as soon as I add it to a TS, I get the 0x80070002 (i think) stating it cannot find the file.  When the deployment logs in, I do not see the mapped drive.  I can see the task window stating mapping drive then Add DPM Client, but then thats where it fails.

    I have the task sequence in 3 step, first to map the network drive (net use P: \\server\c$), second to add the DPM Agent using ("P:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\DPM\DPM\agents\RA\4.0.1920.0\amd64\1033\DPMAgentInstaller_KB2751230_AMD64.exe" /q server.domain.com)(that is the location of the file), and the third to remove the mapped drive.

    I should also mention that the firewall is enabled, but just before the map network drive, I have it disabled, then set to enable after the DPM client is installed.

    Suggestions?

  • run the exe from cmd with /? to display the options. 

    I failed to find this information on the MS sites

     

    DPMAgentinstaller_x64.exe /q <FQDN DPM server name> /IAcceptEula

  • This basically worked for me.. I have been trying to deploy DPM 2012 R2 Agents to client computers using SCCM.

    These steps I took.

    1. Copied the contents of the Protection Agents to the SCCM AppDeploy folder

    2. Created a package with the DpmAgentInstaller.exe /q <DPM server name> command

    3. Deployed package to computers

    These process failed with the error "maximum runtime exceeded" after running for several hours.

    But when I uses the command as proposed by Duggg, (DPMAgentinstaller.exe /q <FQDN DPM server name> /IAcceptEula), it worked like a charm..

    Thank you Duggg

  • Can someone point me in the direction or help me out with steps to include DPM in a system image as part of a task sequence and then directing the agent to the server?

  • Hi - I created the package and the install was successful.  Just one minor issue - the system has to restart after the install.  How can I suppress the restart?
