Dear Team,

Recently we have came accross a product compatibility issue with Microsoft OS.

We are having SYM backup exec 2010 R2 installed on Windows 2008 R2 server and we deployed one application server on Windows 2012 R2 Standard edition having Hypervisor. We installed Hyper V agent on this remote server and try to configure backup.

But backup is getting failed. More over when this backup runs it hangs my remote server and keep increasing the page file on server and fill up the space.

After logging the case with Symantec ( case id : 06050234), we came to know that backup exec is yet not support to Windows 2012  R2 version.

This Operating system was relased 5/6 months back and many other products are relased with compatibily to this OS except Backup exec.

Kindly arrange to enhanse the symantec product and relase the patch so that we can backup our critical application.

Looking forward your prompt response.

Best Regards,

Alpesh Jariwala

Support for Server 2012 R2 will be provided by BE 2012 R2 which is due to be released in the middle of the year. You would have to upgrade to that version when it is released

CraigV's picture should check the blogs section for the Beta details, as well as the BE 2012 SCL to make sure that BE supports specific versions of an OS or application and on what level.
