error 858 invalid product key dpm 2012 r2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are wanting to evaluate dpm 2012 r2. Downloaded the install from TechNet, but when we enter the product key we get "The DPM product key is invalid. (ID: 858)

    enter a valid DPM product key.  the product key is locate don the back cover of the data protection manager product DVD

    this makes no sense.

  • Sorry I have no resolution for you.

    However, I have the exact same problem. The MSDN key does not work for DPM.

  • I solved my problem by activating the OS first.

    Windows 2012 R2 was not activated. The moment I activated it, DPM accepted the MSDN Key.

  • I had this problem using a BizSpark key. I copied and pasted the key from MSDN and got error 858. I then backspaced to delete the entry then typed it manually and it was accepted. I don't understand why because I've done the same  copy/paste process on other MS products.

  • Thanks!  It happened to me also. If you copy/paste the key, it doesn't work. But if you manually type it, then it works. Crazy!
