BE2012 SP2 deployment

Created: 21 Aug 2013 | 1 comment

Just to confirm that the latest release of Backup Exec 2012 SP2 did not support Windows Server 2012 as the media server ? Is there any timeline for the release of BE that will support Win 2012 svr as the media server. In order to backup Windows 2012 server , Exchange 2013, I need to installed BE 2012 on a Windows 2008 as the media server and just install Agent for Windows on the Windows 2012 server and Exchange 2013. Is this the supported BE 2012 deployment at the moment ?

Thanks in advance.

Yes.  You cannot install BE 2012 on a Windows 2012 machine.  This is not supported.

No.  The next release of BE is supposed to support Windows 2012 as a media server, but there is no information on when it will be released.

In order to backup Windows 2012 server , Exchange 2013, I need to installed BE 2012 on a Windows 2008 as the media server and just install Agent for Windows on the Windows 2012 server and Exchange 2013. Is this the supported BE 2012 deployment at the moment ?

Yes.  This is correct.  Note that the backup of Exchange 2013 is non-GRT.  See the SCL below
