Application Question

I've read the documentation on VEB and I think it's great. In fact, I can see this being deployed in many areas of our enterprise. So, now my question is this...I know that Server 2003 isn't officially supported but does VEB function on Server 2003 just without support? I have a rack of legacy Server 2003 servers that are on the upgrade chopping block to be virtualized. I'd like to use VEB and move away from MS Data Protection Manager ASAP as DPM doesn't give me warm fuzzys for it's reliability.

Hello Tony,

I don’t want to upset you, but OS components Endpoint relies on are outdated in Win 2003, so it is technically impossible.

Glad to hear that you put your energy into supported operating systems, rather than outdated software ;)

That's what I expected. And, you didn't upset me. The upset comes from having ancient hardware. :-)
