Backup Exec 2014 media server in a HyperV VM
We are starting a project to replace an old Bue2010 R3 mediaserver with a new one. The new server will have a 10 gbe network connection.
The media server has a local Sql express database. We backup to datadomain wich has also a 10gbe network connection. We have Exchange, SQL, Enterprise Vault, Vmware ESXi, Sharepoint, Active directory and a lot of Virtual servers and some physical servers in our environment.
We consider three scenario's at the moment
We will install a Backup Exec 2014 mediaserver with a local sql express database in a HyperV VM. Is it supported to install a Bue2014 mediaserver in a HyperV vm with windows server 2012R2 as OS?
We are thinking about buying two physical servers. We will install a Windows Server 2012R2 hyperV cluster on these servers. The mediaserver will we install in a VM. The plan is that the vm can fail over to the other HyperV server in case of a Physical server failure. We backup to disk (datadomain).
We will install a physical server with Windows Server 2012 R2 and BUE 2014 as mediaserver on this server with a local sql express database.
We backup the physical server daily with Symantec System Recovery. We will restore the server with the system recovery image in case of a failure on another server with the same hardware. Is this backup and restore method supported with a bue 2014 mediaserver?
We will install two physical servers with windows server 2012r2 and BUE 2014 in a failover cluster.
Our production SQL server has sql 2005 sp3 at the moment. Is it right that we have to upgrade to at least sql2005 sp4 for clustered database support?
Is it possible to migrate the local sql express database to a sql server cluster and use it as a shared Bue database?
I would like to know if these scenario's are supported. Thank you for your feedback
