This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello,

Can we backup Windows Server 2012 R2 (domain controllers) with BE 2010 R3 SP3 agents while media server is on Server 2008 R2? If not, what BE version is required?

Regards,

Ivan

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH205797 Here's the link where you can find Software Compatibility Lists (SCL) for all Backup Exec version.

I checked the one fore BE 2010 and it doesnt list Windows Server 2012 R2 as a supported OS.

Windows Server 2012 is listed as a suppoered OS for remote agent backups, but that is only supported with BE 2010 R3 + SP3

Update: I even checked the BE 2012 SCL and unfortunately, it still doesnt list Windows Server 2012 R2

 

Update2: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/backup-exec-beta-program

The next major release of Backup Exec (i.e. BE 2014) will support Windows Server 2012 R2. See the blog link above for more information.

Thanks for the quick reply. Will there be available an update for 2010 that enables this too?

I'm affraid i cant answer that for now. We'll need to wait and see if and when BE2010 can get Windows Server 2012 R2 support.
