SQL01 – SQL 2016 RTM install (At this point in time I still recommend SQL2014 for DPM2016)
DPM01 – Data Protection Manager 2016 RTM install
When ‘check and install’ get the below error. Clicking on OK then closes the installer
How did we get here?
- Install SQL 2016 RTM on SQL01.
- Setup remote access for DPM01.
- Install DPM Prereq’s on SQL01.
- attempt to Install DPM 2016 RTM… and baboom… Error 4387.
How to fix?
Well, having a quick search lead me to here.. The solution that worked for my scenario was in the comments from a chap named Edward.
So, I uninstalled SSMS 17.1 (even though you don’t need to, it’s just a ‘me’ thing), then installed 16.5.3 from here.
Reran the installer and I was presented with great success!
Hope this helps anyone deploying DPM 2016 and hoping to get it running on SQL 2016 without embarking on the SQL2014 upgrade option..
