Backing up Windows 2008R2 Virtual Machines using Backup Exec 12.5


We cuurently use Backup Exec 12.5 to backup our Virtual Machines, all VM's to this point have been windows 2003, our new VM's are now Windows 2008R2, Our setup is as follows

We have a physical Sevrer with Windows 2003 installed that currently runs the Backup Exec software and has the Tape drives, this is connected into the San Via Fibre and can see all of the LUNS.

We use the backupexec GRT technology, we do not deploy any remote agents into the Virtual Machines, our ESX hosts are licenced, i seem to see mixed answers as to the support backing up / restoring in this way with Windows 2008R2 Virtual Machines, i see some documentation that said you can only backup windows 2008 r2 servers using a remote agent.

Could anyone confirm this

There have been a hotfix that has been released to only support Backup Exec 12.5 and Win 2008R2 (Remote Agent Support Only).

Take a look at the following links...
