  • Hi,

    As per the System Requirements, DPM 2012 R2 does not install SQL Server like previous versions.  You will need a pre-installed SQL Server instance of 64-bit SQL Server as follows:

    • SQL Server 2012 with SP1 (11.0.3000)—Standard or Enterprise edition.
    • SQL Server 2008 R2 with SP2 (10.50.4000)—Standard or Enterprise edition.
