Support for SQL Server 2008 as a Configuration Database

Post by Yuya » May 30, 2019 8:35 am

Hi,

We use SQL Server 2008 as the configuration database for Veeam Backup & Replication.
However, Microsoft will end support for SQL Server 2008 in July 2019.

Is there a problem with using SQL Server 2008 even after support has ended?
Veeam version is 9.5.4.2753.

And, will SQL Server 2008 be supported in a future release?

Regards,
Yuya

For the current versions, there shouldn't be an issue as long as they are supported by us however I'm sure that in the future, we will also drop it as a supported platform just like Microsoft will. The supported platforms can always be found in the user guide.
