 To use an instance of SQL Server on a remote computer, run sqlprep.msi, which is located on the DPM product DVD in the DPM2007\msi\SQLprep folder.
 Verify that the user account you will be using to run the SQL Server service and the SQL Server Agent service has read and execute permissions to the SQL Server installation location.
