Hi,

I'm trying to find out if synthetic backups of Linux file systems (specifically OES2) are officially supported by Backup Exec 2012 . This isn’t noted in any Symantec compatibility list.

They work in my test environment with CentOS and this was fully supported in older versions of Backup Exec as per the following tech note: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH38377 

Thanks, Nick

Yes, synthetic backups can be performed on supported (listed in SCL) RALUS systems - http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?pag...

Novell Open Enterprise Server

Novell Open Enterprise Server v2 is listed on the Backup Exec 2012 SCL as compatible with the RALUS. Can you please confirm if it is compatible or incompatible with Synthetic backups?

Many thanks for your help
