Now, I have to be honest that among all the Microsoft System Center products, System Centre Data Protection Manager (SCDPM) is the low-activity, if not least, attention product.
What can possibly this become a problem, you ask? Limited resources to be refer to whenever something horrible happened to it and decided to be in a non-functional state, and I always have this problem eventually contact with Microsoft Support for lots more tedious process all over.
What could be nicer? Here Microsoft starting to change the way they published KnowledgeBase (KB) article, now it includes with walkthrough method on troubleshoot problem you may face. Below is one of the example of this, and it is nice to have.

Good Job Microsoft, and hopefully more similar KB to come and much stable product on vNEXT.

For those who still yet to get to know what this toolkit does, it basically enable the full deployment of Microsoft System Center in just a few clicks, including an AD and full suite with total of 15 VMs. Well, it does done the job just a few clicks when it does work without any glitch. Excited yet?

To give a better understanding on how this tools is roughly used to deploy System Center, I found this YouTube video below is straight forward to explain in action.
