We have run backup and importantly restore of Windows 2012 files and SQL 2012 databases on Windows 2012 with the Netbackup 7.5.0.4 client.

There was an issue with permissons functioning differently on the SQL 2012 databases on Windows 2012, the script gave an exit code 0 eventhough nothing was backed up.

Know it is not supported, but we simply cannot wait for Symantec any longer as the organization is already running production things on Windows 2012

What you must do is to ask for the special 7.1.0.4 client that supports the file backup of windows 2012 and dump the databases before the backup.

I think that it is very stupid from symantec's side not to announce the release date of 7.5.0.6

Dump is out of the question for us, what we need it for Symantec to keep up with the major OS releases.

Worst thing is that the 7.5.0.4 actually works so Symantec could just have tested that against Windows 2012 and stated what you could backup & restore with that version.
