Server 2012 support, what a joke

Created: 20 Jan 2014 | 6 comments

I mistakenly bought BE 2012 SP3 as our routine choice of backup software for a new server 2012 installation.

And of course as I now find out, it doesn't work on server 2012. Despite having been around for some time symantec don't support it. What a joke.

You've just lost another customer.

Unfortunately you are not the only one with this issue. Support for Windows 2012 (R2) is added much too late !

 

Best is to check the SCL before purchase. But for now, it's already too late.

If this response answers your concern, please mark it as a "solution"

It doesn't look like its going to be added anytime soon so I'll have to use Arcserve. Now I need to cancel my order of BE2012 for a refund.
