Recently we did a fresh install of  of DPM 2012 R2 but when we try to  Open the DPM console  it gives the error “Unable to connect to “DPMServer” ID: 948: verify DPM service is  running on this computer”.


We managed to open the admin console by  Adding the admin user directly to the SQL Instance and assigning the user to the MSDPMExecRole and the MSDPMReaderRole.

After assigning these permissions we were able to open the admin console with out any issue
