Hyper-V 2012 R2 support

Veeam Logoby msp2010 » Mon Aug 19, 2013 10:59 am

Hello *,

I installed Veeam7 on a Windows 2012 which is hosted on Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper- V. Unfortunately Veeam v7 can see all VMs on a Hyper-V 2012, but not on a Hyper-V 2012 R2.

I had the same experience with 6.5 and thought with v7 the Problems are solved. I see only the Hyper-V but not the VMs inside, so I can´t save the VMs.

Regards

Hyper-V 2012 R2 has not been released yet (and its release is still a few months away), and a such it is not supported by the current B&R version.
Please review the System Requirements section of the Release Notes document for more information on supported software versions.
Thanks!

Hi guys, I have a new deployment that I might have to delay until 2012 R2 is supported by Veeam. Is this something you guys are actively working on to support? If so, could you give us a very rough time frame?

I need to know whether to build now on 2012 and migrate everything to 2012 R2 or to hold off.

As mentioned above, the Windows Server 2012 R2 is not available yet. So, once it is, we will be able to provide rough estimation regarding time the product supports this platform. However, it’s generally recommended not to rush with the software update. Thanks.

Actually, Windows Server 2012 R2 RTM is now available for download, and we have started looking at the release code. We should have a rough estimation of support timelines in a few weeks. As I've noted before, Server 2012 R2 support is not going to be a quick and easy task due to massive API changes on the Hyper-V side, and no backward compatibility with existing API. This requires us to completely re-write, and re-test big chunks of code. Microsoft is really not helping Hyper-V 2012 R2 adoption with these kind of changes affecting every single 3rd party solution out there, but alas...

Gostev, I meant that I've installed Veeam 7 on Windows 2012 R2 to backup a vSphere 5.1 U1 host
So far so good, installation, backup and basic restore test where successful

Oh, I see. I was talking about Hyper-V 2012 R2. Installing backup server on Windows 2012 R2 did seem to work for us too, although we've only done smoke tests at the moment.

Please post any hotfixes or beta dlls when you have them. Would love to test on our in-house 2012R2 ASAP.

@Don sounds good, actually might be a good idea to have a limited beta, I will discuss with QC.
@Steve we are working on it, and hoping to release support for Hyper-V 2012 R2 before 2013 ends.

Hi,

in my case backup immediately fails with this error message "Task failed Error: Invalid class".
Also it is not possible to "list" the VMs in backup job-creation view.
Does anybody know if there's a trick?

Regards,
Clemens
