  • Hi,

    DPM cannot be installed on a cluster node - this is covered in the following TechNet page

    Preparing your environment for System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager (DPM)

    Under limitations

    You can install DPM on the operating system volume or on a different volume. 

    DPM is designed to run on a dedicated, single-purpose server. Don’t install DPM on:

    • A server running the Application Server role
    • An Operations Manager Management server
    • A server running Exchange
    • A server running on a cluster node

    DPM isn’t supported on the Turkish language version of any of the supported Windows Server versions.
