Does LiveState System Recovery (LSR), Backup Exec System Recovery (BESR), or Symantec System Recovery support Citrix / XenServer.


Solution



For detail information of operating system and software compatibility please refer to the Software Compatibility List for the specific version in the related articles section below.
 
BESR 8.5 started supporting Citrix Xen App 4.5 and Citrix XenServer 4.1.  VHD and VMDK files created by BESR must be imported to a full VM before they are converted to XenServer (SVA) format.  Recovery points (v2i/iv2i) can be restored directly to a XenServer VM using the recovery disk. BESR fully supports protecting Windows systems running in a XenServer VM.  
 
Versions previous to BESR 8.5  (LSR 3 &6, and BESR 6.5, 7, 8) have not been tested on Citrix and Symantec does not support these versions of the product on this OS; this applies to all versions of Citrix Metaframe.
 
System Recovery does not support Linux virtual machines running on XenServer hosts at this time.
