Backup Exec 2008 R3 SP4 capability to run as a windows server 2008 VM
I have had a look around the forums for this topic but none specifically meet my question.
We have currently aquired a top-end server to accomodate for mainly the symantec backup solution. (We would expand it's purpose at a later time)
As Backup exec 2010 R3 SP4 is last supported by Windows Server 2008 R2 we would like to run it as a virtual machine.
The Server has more then the processing capabilities it would require.
The physical server would be a Windows Server 2012 R2
Whereas the VM running Backup Exec would be Windows server 2008 (For migration purposes)
I know it may not exactly be supported, but is there any known issues regarding this?
We would be connecting the physical server via SAS to the tape library and running through this connection for the virtual machine.
