*Update 26th March*

I'm pleased to announce that from today Enterprise Vault now offers support for Service Pack 1 for Exchange Server 2013 and Outlook 2013 (as a client).

See below for minimum Enterprise Vault versions:

  • Exchange Server 2013 SP1 - Supported from Enterprise Vault 10.0.4 CHF2 or later
  • Outlook 2013 SP1 - Supported as a client from Enterprise Vault 10.0.3 or later

SharePoint 2013 SP1 is still in certification and we expect to be able to announce support in the coming weeks.

As always, check the Enterprise Vault compatibility guide for all certification information: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH38537

Would it be too much to hope that will include support for Windows 8.1 SP1?

Obviously like you, we're expecting Windows 8.1 Update 1 to come soon and will be ready to test ASAP but meanwhile we'll have to wait. Based on previous Windows SPs this will probably just be a certification test rather than us having to update our client but let's not jump to conclusions so watch this space.

If it's not a service pack, just an update, are you going to still certify it?

The question is when is a service pack not a service pack, We'll assume most customers will treat this as a service pack and ask us for support status. Also just spotted this update today, the press are reporting a GA date of April 2nd....guess they didn't want to go for April 1st :)

Wellll you could argue that the Exchange Updates fall in to the same boat, but they're not explicitly certified right?  It's a tricky one, but if it's called Update 1, and you certify it, people might 'expect' all the Exchange ones to follow suit.

@Rob I was getting my SP's and updates mixed up there but glad to see a debate about where to draw the line regarding compatibility/support. Tricky to keep in step with MS if they keep shifting the goal posts

Can you comment on support for Windows 2012 R2 on the EV server?

We are certifying this at the moment against EV 10.0.4 and expect to be able to announce support in the next 3-4 weeks (providing no show stoppers are found).

If 60-90 days is the normal policy does that mean that Exchange 2013 CU2 and/or CU3 are fully supported now?

As Gertjan says, we only released 10.0.4 recently. At the moment we have no plans for a 10.0.5. This certification will be done against 10.0.4

Cool, so in this case if I upgrade the existing EV 9.04 I can then automatically guaranteed that it would be compatible with Exchange Server 2013 SP1 ?

There are no guarantee's until we finalise the certification. Once this is done then we'll be able to tell you whether server changes are required and how we'll release those changes. More to come...

So supported migrated option to EV 11 is by doing the upgrade from 9 and then migrate to v10.0.5 and then perform inline upgrade to v11 ?

I see that Exchange 2013 CU 5 is still "pending" on the Compatibility Matrix - any idea when it might be supported?
