Backup Exec 2010 Installation/OS Issue
Hi, we just recently purchased Symantech Backup Exec 2010, and according to the website it met the minimum requirements, however running the Pre-Installation it says that our server does not meet the minumum requirements. The website states it will work on Windows 2000 Server Family, however the Pre-Install says that it Failed, The Operarting System Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 does not meet the minimum requirements for Symantec Backup Exec. The minimum requirements for Backup Exec are Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Windows 2003 Service Pack 1.
My question is, can Backup Exec 2010 be installed on Windows 2000 Server, as the website states? Or is it not compatible, as the Pre-Install states? When researching it on the web, it says it can be installed on Windows 2000 Server with Service Pack 4, and I read it needs Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4, which we have.
Prior to this we were running an older version of Veritas (8.5 I believe) which is not compatible with the new tape backup, our old one went out.
I called tech support, but they said since it's a Non Profit, that it's not supported and referred me to the forums for assistance. Thank you for any help you may be able to offer.
