Windows Server 2012 in production RRS feed

  • Question

  • So there was a huge drive to put a few windows server 2012 boxes in production.

    I know that DPM 2012 SP1 is required to back them but.... but this puts me in between a rock and a hard place. Have others just not put any Server 2012 in production or are they trusting the SP1 beta?

  • The only production 2012 servers we have are virtual machines on our vSphere infrastructure which is backed up via VEEAM.  We aren't deploying physical 2012 servers until system center 2012 SP1 is released so we can back them up via DPM.

  • Hi,

    Take a look at Annoucements - DPM 2012 support for Windows Server 2012 :

    DPM 2012 support for Windows Server 2012: We also do not support protecting Windows Server 2012 using SCS DPM 2012 until after SC SP1 is released.   Please do not expect any suppport for DPM 2012 running on Windows Server 2012, or issues while protecting data sources in Windows Server 2012.

    If you are a gambler ? :) (Never trust Beta for production environment)

    TAP customers are deploying beta in production with support from Microsoft.

    Others are either waiting or deploying beta bits in production , the politicially correct answer is to wait until SP1 is GA , or use a 3rd party vendor that is ready for WS2012

    Personally i hope this is the last time we ever will have a gap this big between systemcenter and windows server

  • I will hold tight until SP1. Until then i will just do manual backups with wbadmin.
