DPM 2012 RTM upgrade to SP1 fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody.

    I have a server with DPM 2012 RTM installed. I've tried to upgrade it to DPM 2012 SP1, but it fails with this error:

    An older version of DPM is installed on this computer. Please upgrade to System Center 2012 DPMRelease Candidate and launch setup again. (ID: 33339)

    However, my installed DPM version is newer than any release candidate, as it's version 2012 RTM. My DPM reports version "4.0.1908.0", which is the RTM version, according to http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4058.list-of-build-numbers-for-system-center-data-protection-manager-dpm-en-us/revision/6.aspx

    So, I'm required to downgrade my RTM installation to a release candidate version, prior to upgrade to SP1?! Yeah right :-)

    According to the above web site, there's a DPM 2012 SP1 out (4.0.2042.0), and that's the one I'm trying to install.

    So, how do I get DPM 2012 SP1 installed?

    DPM 2012 Sp1 is still in beta and has not yet been released to the general public.  You will need to wait for general availability and formal support.

  • Did you get a fix to this?  I have the same issue.  Downloaded bits from MS Volume License site, but SP1 will not install saying that I have an older version.
