3600 appliance support for Server 2012?

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Any idea when the remote agent support for Server 2012 will hit the 3600 appliance?

 

All of my new servers are 2012 and I am unable to back them up...  Not good.

Hi,

 

You're either running BE 2012 or BE 2010, and in either case, check the blog below. Beta starts end-May for both of them...you might want to sign-up for that ASAP!

Something tells me running beta software on this appliance wouldn't work out so well. Its my production backup solution.

Its not like a regular wintel server where you can easily rollback or make changes.

Just RDP'ing into the box is not really supported and takes a number of steps.

I will wait until its a real release.

...wasn't suggesting that you upgrade, but signing up to the Beta is worthwhile if you have a spare server. It's going to give you a bit of time to play around with the changes made etc...

Thanks!

Greetings all.

Yes, the BE 3600 runs BE 2012, so support is not here yet, but soon.  For info about the beta, you can follow the beta blog here

For more info on the appliance, you may want to look at the G+ Hangout we did on Friday.  3 Experts take a deep dive into it looking at the licensing software and hardware.
