In case you weren’t familiar with our Advisory Services engagement options, Microsoft Advisory Services is an hourly fee-based, consultative support option that provides proactive support beyond your break-fix product maintenance needs. This is a remote, phone-based support option that includes working with the same engineer for assistance with issues like product migration, code review, or new program development. This service is typically used for shorter engagements, and is designed for developers and IT professionals who do not require the traditional onsite consulting or sustained account management services that are available from other Microsoft support options.
In this particular scenario we will show you how to perform the initial installation of a Data Protection Manager 2007 Server, including requirement evaluation, installation of all prerequisites and both local and remote installations of SQL Server.
If this sounds like something you might be interested in then check out our new KB article describing the scenario below:

But wait, so what about the awesome new DPM 2010? Well don’t worry, a similar offering for DPM 2010 should be available shortly. I’ll be sure to let you know here first.
