Pre-requisite require when backup using DPM 2010 RC

When creating Protection Group in DPM 2010 RC console, you will see the following error message

The error message is quite straight forward. Since my Hyper V host is running on Windows Server 2008 R2, i need to go to the following links as requested

Both links point to request a hotfix from Microsoft. After request is make, the hotfix is available for download.

Install two hotfixes and you need to restart the Hyper V hosts after apply the hotfixes. Once the host has restarted, you need to go to Management and select agent tab using DPM 2010 console.
Refresh all the entire Hyper V host and make sure the status indicated "OK".

Once you have complete this process, you can start to create the protection group without encounter any problem.
