Backup Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012

Created: 20 Feb 2013 • Updated: 29 Apr 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Dears,

   Kindly, I knew that Backup Exec Server 2012 can not Backup Windows Server 2012 products and Hyper-V on it. but it is a big issue! as i have 5 servers that have 2012 operating system and Hyper-V cluster over them. so i need to protect them.

My question; Is there any way to help protecting My VMs on hyper-v v3; Like any tool from symantec or even a third party tool till Symantec released the suitable update for protecting 2012 Products.

Sure many of you are in the same situations, How do you backup your hyper-V on your 2012 Servers?

Waiting Your Valuable Reply

Set up a SC Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 machine, try to add the 2012 servers as hosts, this will fail, however backup exec will now see the guests in Hyper-V !! Happy days ;)
