Error 31008 When Creating Protection Group in DPM for SQL Server

I am attempting to use DPM to back up SQL Server Databases on a SBS2003 machine, but am getting the dreated error ID 31008, cannot be protected because of missing prereqs.  The odd thing is, it will allow me to protect some databases, but not all....on the same server.  I can backup up the sharepoint and wsus databases, but nothing else.

I've installed hotfix 940349 and rebooted both machines.  Both servers have been to windows update and are good.  Im kind of at a loss now

DPM isn't supported on an SBS.  You should NOT install it on an SBS.

DPM is running a windows 2003 server, the sql server is running on SBS 2003

What other Databases do you have on your SBS?  If you have full SQL Server running, are the databases mirrored already?

Not sure what the problem was, but we received our copy of SQL Server 2008 in the mail yesterday afternoon, and after a fun night of upgrading/installed, no more error msg.  Thanks for your help Jeff!
