Installing DPM protection agent on primary DPM server

I have 2 DPM servers.  Both are server 2012 and running SCCM DPM 2012 SP1 v4.1.3417.0.

I had the secondary server backing up data on the primary but half the jobs would fail with communication errors.  So I uninstalled the protection agent.  I am trying to reinstall the protection agent now.  If I manually do it from the primary server through command line, I get a message saying that the DPM agent cannot be installed on a DPM server.

If I try to install from the secondary server through DPM 2012 SP1 console, it looks like it installs successfully, but if I check the agent status it shows as unavailable.

Any help is appreciated.


Thanks
