DPM 2010 crashes during remote agent install; local installation of agent also fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to install a DPM agent on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 VM. Whenever I select the computer name of the server to install it on, the DPM 2010 Administrator Console crashes and closes. I have tried locally installing the agent on the server to be protected. This fails with the following message:"DPMAgentInstaller failed with errorcode =0x80070005, error says: Access is denied".   Then I tried installing the agent locally , without using the server name. That worked and the agent installed. Next, I attempted to run the "setDPMServer.exe -dpmserverName <servername> command, but that fails with the following message: "SetDpmServer failed with errorcode = 0x80004005, error says: Unspecified error".

    Can anyone please assist me with troubleshooting this?
