BE 2014 running on Windows Server 2008 R2 and trying to backup up 2012 R2 AD
When trying to do a GRT backup of VMWare virtualised Windows Server 2012 R2 AD I get the following...
V-79-57344-38730 - Backup Exec was unable to authenticate with virtual machine <virtual machine address> and was unable to collect the necessary metadata to restore individual application items. You cannot perform GRT-enabled restores of application data from this backup. You must edit the credentials for the host computer's backup job and then select the proper credentials for the virtual machine.
My BE 2014 server is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
In the advertising of Backup Exec 2014 it claims...
"Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2 Support
Backup Exec 2014 fully supports Windows Server 2012 and Windows server 2012 R2. You can back up and recover Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2, at any level, whenever and however you need to."
However, in a forum message I have read that the backup server needs to be Windows Server 2012 based to be able to back up a 2012 R2 AD. I can't see this mentioned anywhere else at the moment.
Can someone please clarify whether I need to upgrade my backup server to Windows Server 2012 R2 to acheive what I want, or whether there is another problem I am facing.
I'm pretty sure that the credentials are correct.
