        The Hotfix Rollup Package for DPM 2007 (KB954641) addresses four key issues. This package should solve a problem with the DPMRA service on the DPM Server occasionally crashing. When creating a protection group, a missing calculate link option in the Data Size column has been added. This hotfix package also addresses an error message when configuring secondary protection for an item on a secondary DPM server. Protection of data local to the DPM Server is also now enabled.

        This Data Protection Manager Update Package consists of three separate updates. Note: Depending on your configuration, some updates may not apply. Please see “Installation Instructions” for details.

        Feature Bullet Summary:
        Issues Fixed:
        • The DPMRA service on the DPM Server occasionally crashes, marking replicas as inconsistent (in this case the system event log may contain entries stating that the DPMRA service terminated unexpectedly)
        • Missing calculate link option in the Data Size column when creating a protection group and selecting a volume to protect (when directories are deselected under that volume)
        • When configuring secondary protection for an item on a secondary DPM server, some cases an error comes up when stating “This item is not protectable because some prerequisite software is missing. Ensure that all prerequisite software is installed and then protect this item”, even if the item is already successfully protected on the primary DPM Server.
        • Inability to protect data local to the DPM server
    • Supported Operating System

      Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 Datacenter without Hyper-V, Windows Server 2008 Enterprise without Hyper-V, Windows Server 2008 Standard without Hyper-V

      • The files contained in this download are for x86 systems only.

        This Data Protection Manager hotfix rollup package consists of three separate updates. To install each update, follow these steps:
        1. Install the hotfix rollup package on the server that is running Data Protection Manager 2007. To do this, run the DataProtectionManager2007-KB954641.exe file on the server.

          Note You do not have to restart the server after you install the hotfix rollup package.

        2. Update the remote SQL Server installation that is hosting the DPMDB database. To do this, run the SqlPrep-KB954641.msp file on the computer that is running SQL Server.

          Note This step is not required if you are running a SQL DPMDB instance on the Data Protection Manager 2007 server.

        3. Update the protection agents on the DPM Administrator Console. There are two methods to update the protection agents on the protected computers:
          • Method 1: Update the protection agents from the DPM Administrator Console
            • Open the DPM Administrator Console.
            • Click the Management tab, and then click the Agents tab.
            • Select a computer from the Protected Computer list, and then click Update on the Action pane.
            • Click Yes in the dialog box, and then click Update Agents.
            • As soon as you receive the Enter Credentials and Reboot option dialog box, enter you credentials, select the Manually restart the selected servers later option, and then click OK.
            Note You do not have to restart the computer to update the agent. This is why the Manually restart the selected servers later option was selected.

          • Method 2: Update the protection agents on the protected computers
            • Obtain the update protection agent package from the " Data Protection Manager installation location \DPM\Agents\RA\2.0.8111.0" directory on the Data Protection Manager 2007 server.

            • Open the DPM Administrator Console on the Data Protection Manager 2007 server.
            • Click the Management tab, and then click the Agents tab.
            • Select the protected computers, and then verify that the agent version is listed as 2.0.8111.0.
