failed to setdpmserver RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    i trying to install DPM agent to a windows 7 workgroup client. after manually install the agent on the client. i proceed to run the 'setdpmserver' command.

    However, when i type "setdpmserver.exe -dpmservername DPM -isnondomainserver -username administrator", after entering the administrator password. i get errors:

    "error id:32692. please make sure that you have administrator privileges on this computer and are running this program from an elevated command prompt."

    which admin account do i have to use? the local computer or the domain account? anyway i tried both but don't work.

    regards,

    Steve

  • Hi,

    Yes, the account is created locally on the client. It will be listed in the Users with a description "DPM Backup Account".

    Thanks,

  • Hi Steve,

    Please make sure you are opening the command windows with administrative privledge (right click choose "Run as administrator")

    The username you specify in the setdpmserver command is a new user account which you will also use when you attach the agent in the DPM console.

    This is a pretty good walk through of setting up protection of workgroup machines:

  • The new acct is create on the local workgroup machine? So, if i have 10 local workgroup clients, it will create an individual acct on each client?
