DPM2010 doesnt recognized that on a win2008r2 is sql 2005 installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    we are using dpm 2010 for backup our sql servers

     

    on all our servers are sql server 2005 x64 installed (OS windows server 2008)

     

    for testing, i installed a new win 2008 r2 server, installed sql server 2005 on the machine and after that i installed the dpm protection agent. when i now try to put the sql backup from an other sql server (os win 2008) to the new server (os win 2008 r2) he doesnt recognized that on the new server is sql installed and so i doesnt see the server at the drop down menu when i choose "on an other sql instance"

     

    is it because the os doenst is the same? server we backup win 2008, sql 2005 64 bit - server we are trying to restore the backup win 2008 r2, sql 2005 64bit

     

    or is there any configuration we can make that dpm 2010 recognized that on this server is an sql instance installed.

     

    The backup for example: system protection, local drives, etc... is possible to restore on the new server without any problems.

     

    only sql makes problems
