Cant protect clients on DPM 2012 R2

I have a fully up to date version of DPM 2012 R2 and i am struggling to enable client protection.

Firstly when i go to add servers / clients it says "Production Servers" in the top left, i am sure it never said this on my old installation. Then when i click "Add" it only has an option for "Windows Servers" and "VMware Servers" I am positive i used to have a clients option.

I add the client via the "Windows Servers" option click attach fill all details in.

On the client i install the package from the dpm server. I run cmd as admin and setdpmserver -dpmservername servername

then on the server i get error 308 - Unavailable.   There are no restrictions or firewalls running on client or server as i have removed everything while testing.

If i click "About DPM" the version number is 4.2.1553.0   This is the same version as the installed clients.

Anyone got any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.

I have managed to fix the issue.

The problem was windows 10 anniversary updates with latest DPM 2012 r2 client.

Fixed by copying a dll from system32 from a non updated pc to the updated ones.
