Issue installing DPM - Error ID 4307 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to install DPM 2019. I installed locally SQL 2017 with a named instance, but it's giving me an error 4307. When I specify the SQL instance, it's not allowing me to specify username and password, it automatically greyed it out saying it will be using the logged username (that username has access to the SQL server, but still it's failing)

    Firewall was disabled so I can troubleshoot.

    I am able to log in to SQL by command line.

    Any help here is much appreciated.

  • Hello!

    The 4307 error means that the DPM setup is not able to connect to the specified instance of the SQL Server.

    Make sure of the following:

    • Check that the SQL Server Browser is enabled and running.
    • Only use <Computer name> for the default instance, otherwise use <Computer name\<Instance name>
    • Make sure you have enough permissions to the SQL instance.
    • Make sure you have a supported SQL collation.

    You can find more detailed information in the DPM installation log, you can find it over here:

    • "C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center\DPM\DPMLogs\DpmSetup.log"

  • Hi,

    I followed all the points since yesterday, I used default instance and a named instance just to try both. Permissions on sql are all set as I am able to connect to it with command line.

    And SQL Browser is running as well. SQL collation is also checked.

    Here is the logs:

  • Make sure that you have installed and configured SQL Server 2017 Reporting Services, note that this doesn't come with SQL Server 2017 anymore so you will have to download it separately.

  • I didn't install SSRS. Maybe that is the issue.
