I like to document screenshots of installs so that in the future I can review them and make sure everything is ready like domain accounts created with proper permissions, SQL server known and ready, Windows update or not, if the client want to participate in Customer Experience Improvement Program.

The screenshots below are for System Center Data Protection Manager (SCDPM) 2012 SP1 Beta.

Be sure to run DPM Remote SQL Prep on the SQL server you plan on using with DPM.
