Windows 2012 R2 is not supported with Backup exec as if now . So the remtoe agent backup or GRt backup would not work . But you can backup the server without GRT as would be backing up the VMDK vmsd etc etc. So it shuold work.

Once someone comments after you I guess that option would get disabled. Anyways I'll take care next time.

Windows 2012 R2 is not supported, but SBE  2010R3 SP3 is supported.  You would need to upgrade to at least BE 2012 SP2 to support VMware 5.1

...I don't see anything in RahulG's post that indicates that VMware 5.1 is supported, so in that respect it isn't correct.

Thanks!

Yes your post correct. CraigV meant that in my comment I should have added the information about the VMware 5.1 support, which isn't correct .

...please refer to my previous post where I asked what you edited...

Thanks!

A minor extra comment to cover when we do support that version of Windows fuiully. If DHCP in Windows 2012 and Windows 2012 R2 is Active Directory Integrated then you may not need to restore as you may be able to replicate from another DC, however if you do need to restore then you might have to restore AD as authoritative to get back DHCP. I am not sure that the Active Directory Agent GRT process covers the DHCP objects

That said however even very large companies usually do not have much static configuration in DHCP itself so as long as you document your DHCP ranges and any static IP addresses (either allocated by DHCP or set locally on servers) then most companies would not take long to set DHCP up from a DR.
