Netbackup for SharePoint 2013?

Created: 17 Dec 2012 • Updated: 18 Jul 2013 | 6 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


I'm working with a client who's using Netbackup 7.5, and they're looking at implementing SharePoint 2013.  Does Netbackup 7.5 currently support SharePoint 2013, or is there a roadmap that gives a general idea of when SharePoint 2013 will be supported by Netbackup (7.5 or later)?

SharePoint 2013 is in early release so can't imagine NetBackup supports it today though I'm sure their engineers are working on it! 

update: Alex's blog refers to support from Enterprise Vault and I expect similar support from NetBackup

Symantec generally takes 90-120 days to certify support on new products. I believe MS wave 2013 are just reached to RTM so we should expect certified support by Feb-Mar 2013. May be we get netbackup 7.6 ;-)

We are currently running SharePoint 2010 GRT backups on Netbackup  Our SharePoint team is currently testing SharePoint 2013 in a sandbox environment for rollout later in the year.  What are our options for running GRT backups with SharePoint 2013. I have been doing a lot of searching but not finding much info on the topic. Thanks

I belive the ETA for is sometime this summer, however there has been no offical release date from Symantec as of yet.  Currnelty 7.6 is out on beta.  Please go to :

Thanks for all the great info. Looks like our 2013 rollout is planned for Oct so that gives us time to plan for a NB upgrade
