Hi Folks - Looking for some help here in seeing if anyone has gotten Backup Exec 2012 (media server) to install and work on Microsoft Server 2012?  I just saw from Symantec tech note that Server 2012 is not supported on any curent Backup Exec platform.  Are you kidding me Symantec?  How am I supposed to backup my 2012 servers?
Being that most tech folks have to be creative at times to get stuff to work, I'm curious if anyone has found a way to get Backup Exec 2012 (or older version) to install and create backup to disk backups on a Windows 2012 server?  Yes, I'm looking for a work around to get Backup Exec to work. All we have to backup is a bunch of file shares, so nothing complicated!

The timeframe I'm hearing for a BETA version that supports Server 2012 is May. !
