SCDPM 2012 R2 Rollup 2 workloads RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Does anyone know if it is possible to backup Exchange 2010 on Server 2008 using the re-released DPM 2012 R2 Rollup 2?  (  Rollup 2 says that support was added to backup Server 2003 and Server 2008 but they specify the following workloads only. 

    -Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Microsoft SQL Server 2005

    -Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007

    I’m in a catch 22 situation.  I want to start migrating workloads on to Server 2012 R2 but if I do, I can’t back them up with my current version of DPM.  If I upgrade DPM then I can’t backup my current Exchange environment.

  • Hi Erick,

    Sorry for the delay - I checked with the DPM product group and that was just an oversight when we re-added support for Windows 2008.   Exchange 2010 is supported on windows 2008.  I will work on updating the KB article and Support matrix accordingly.
