Windows 2008 Support

I have Simpana 7.0 running on a Windows 2003 server Standard edition.  I am bringing some 2008 servers on line and was wondering if I can use the Idata agent for 7.0 on these servers.  

RE: Windows 2008 Support

Yes, I am doing that currently haven't had any problems.

RE: Windows 2008 Support

Just to add, we also have Simpana 7.0, and are happily backing up about a dozen windows Server 2008 boxes, both 32 and 64 bit. No known problems so far.

RE: Windows 2008 Support

I have installed the Windows File Idata agent on both physical nodes of a windows 2008 cluster.  Is there any other special procedures for doing clustered server backups?

RE: Windows 2008 Support

Yes, you have to install the virtual file system agent. Run the setup installer again there should be an option for it iirc.

RE: Windows 2008 Support

I had to purchase a license through Dell for this.  Once I configure the VM client I should be all set.
