Install DPM 2012 R2 agent on Server 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently unable to install the DPM 2012 R2 agent onto a Server 2016 server (domain member server). Has Microsoft indicated when this capability will be released?

  • I've read somewhere in this forum that DPM 2012R2 does not support Windows Server 2016, and it never will.

    So even though we've made a substantial investment, have years & hundreds of TB of data stored in DPM 2012 R2, the only way we will be able to backup our new 2016 servers is to setup a separate DPM 2016 server?

  • If licencing allows, you can upgrade to DPM 2016. DPM2016 supports inplace upgrades.

  • Installing DPM agent on a Windows server 2012R2 2016 (for Windows 10)
    to rewrite the destination server (win 2016) file "sisbkup.dll" in the folder "C:\Windows\System32". This file can be found on any server (Win2008-2012), where agent is already installed DPM 2012R2.

    To run the regsvr32 command on target server C:\Windows\System32\sisbkup.dll

    (I personally tried and registering was not completed. But I successfully added a win2016 server in DPM management console afterwards!)

    Clean from traces the DPM agent (perhaps in the case of a failed installation attempt Agnetha)
    1. To make sure that you have not installed the DPM agent install in the add / remove programs.
    2. To verify the agent service (DpmCPWrapperService, DPMRA).
    3. To remove c:\program folder files\data protection Manager Microsoft\ if you have one.

    Install the agent by DPM 2012R2 management console data protection Manager

    There is a actual link, so give this guy a well deserve credit!!!
