This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have checked through the recently latest scl found that windows 2012 is still no supporting netbackup client but MS SQL 2012 is.

May i know when will be the Windows 2012 been supported and is there any workaround to backup Windows 2012 using the currently 7.5.0.4 version ?

It should be Q2 of 2013 for 2012 client support

You can back it up if virtualised using a vSphere backup - this works successfully but is unsupported - but I guess if you have it and have to back it up at least you have a method! (you would need to restore individual files elsewhere as you cannot install a client onto it as yet)

Hope this helps

Curious, folks are rushing into production with no shakeout? I expect we will try 2012 next year after some of the bugs have been found. ;)
