OEL 6.3 is not compatible with Backup Exec 2012

Backup Exec has an agent for OEL 6 update 1  (6.1) and 6.0

Please refer to the Software Compatibility List

Thanks for the response but seriously, I think the latest release of Oracle Enterprise Linux is something like 6.5 or 6.6...is there ever going to be an agent for anything beyond 6.1?

6.3 was released around 3 years ago, is there a plan to support operating systems that are newer than 3 years old.

What is the recommended work around in the mean time, or is it time to buy a new backup solution?
