SCL for Client - Windows Server 2012 R2 in Hyper-V

Created: 11 Mar 2014 • Updated: 26 Apr 2014 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Dears,

I'm using Hyper-V 2012 for possible negotiation and have some questions.
 
1) Netbackup 7.5 or 7.6 is compatible with Windows 2012 Server R2?
2) Netbackup 7.5 or 7.6 is compatible with Hyper-V (Using as Feature of W2K12R2)?
3) Netbackup 7.5 or 7.6 is compatible with Hyper-V (Using as Hypervisor)?
 
Thanks for now.

No version of NetBackup is currently compatible with Windows 2012 R2 as far as Hyper-V.

For more on Hyper-V compatibility and to learn of updates to our support statement, please subscribe to this TechNote for updates:

The "NetBackup for Hyper-V Compatibility" section begins on page 32.

I get in trouble when I try to speculate on Symantec's behalf, so I won't, but I believe from the hints that have been already posted by other folks in other threads, I would be very surprised if some sort of announcement didn't accompany the next maintenance release...but unfortunately, I don't have a firm date on WHEN that next maintenance release is coming.  So consider this answer no help at all.  :)
