does retrospect multi server support w2008r2?

Recommended Posts

Not yet I think as Win2008R2 is 64-bit and current Retrospect version has a bug when backup 64-bit Windows clients.

 

Upcomming ver. 7.7 should fix this bug and finally support Windows 2008+ 64-bit backup/restore. It has only taken 1½ year to fix this!

To answer your question, 2008 is supported but right now Active Directory can not be correctly backed up. That is fixed in the next release.

hi thankyou for your reply

 

just so i am clear, my question is specific to the R2 version of server 2008, and the reason for my question at all is becasue my current backup software (backup exec) does nto support the R2 release whilst it still supports the base version.

 

i do not know the technical reasons why r2 may not be supported, i am just looking for an alternative.

 

if i can be assured that it will support 2008r2 then i will go and buy it (i understand the AD issue)

 

also i want to knwo if retrospect has an agentless function to backup hyper-v vm's

 

any help here will be greatfully recieved.

 

wylie.
