This hotfix enables your DPM 2010 servers to be centrally managed by using Centralized Management Capability available with Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2012 Beta.
DPM 2012 Beta now provides the capability for customers to manage multiple DPM servers using a single console. After applying this hotfix, DPM 2010 cutsomers can also monitor and manage their DPM 2010 servers using the same centralized management console with which they are managing their DPM 2012 servers.
