Error installing SCDPM 2022

Hello community

I don't understand the world anymore :-(

Been trying to install SCDPM 2022 for a few days. Unfortunately always without success.


DP1 Windows Server 2022 current version with all requirements installed. Also SSMS.

DB1 Windows Server 2022 current status. SQL Server 2022 corresponding database set up. As well as reporting services.

All of my devices based on the German language


DP1 see picture DP1

DB1 see picture DB1

What am I failing at?

Thank you for your help.

Greetings mame

    Sorry, the pictures were not visible.

    Here's what you need to do to set up System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM):

    1. Read the Setup prerequisites.
    2. Verify the DPM operating system is compatible.
    3. Set up a SQL Server database to store DPM settings and configuration information.
    4. Set up DPM. You can Install DPM from the user interface or Run an unattended install. Follow these instructions if you want to Install DPM on a domain controller.

    as mentioned I did follow the prerequisites. The error, at least I believe is coming from another part.

    See second pic. Hope this time the pics are visible. As said they are in German

    The second pic. Failed to load Microsoft Software License Terms. The system cannot find the specified file.

    Please try to redownload DPM from here:

    I have uninstalled SQL DPM Instance, Reporting Service and Management Studio and reinstalled as per posted link. Not per command line, I have set it via GUI.

    As well I have downloaded the US Eval of DPM 2022.

    Both tries did end in the same behaviour as already posted. I also have tried the US Eval SQL Prep on the DPM server as well on my WIN11 machine. Always getting this error "failed to load Microsoft License Terms".

    But I need to say that the DPM setup is always starting in German language.

    Cheers, mame

    ok..I could manage to install the prerequisites for SQL server on the SQL server itself

    Now I am still getting the error of the not installed SQL Management Tools. LOG:

    [10.05.2024 19:02:19] Informationen : Getting the error code for check : SqlServerTools and result : 69206016

    [10.05.2024 19:02:19] Informationen : Found Error Code:SqlToolsNotInstalled and Severity: Error

    [10.05.2024 19:02:19] Informationen : Got Error Message: Die SQL Server-Verwaltungstools sind auf diesem Computer nicht installiert. Installieren Sie die Version von SQL Tools, die mit der installierten Version von SQL Server kompatibel ist.

    I have tried to uninstall/install three version of the SQL Management Studio. Version 17.9.1, 18.12.1 and 20.1 on both server DPM and SQL in the same version.

    No success at all!
