DP 6.0 and Windows Server 2008 client

I Cannot find anything about DP 6.0 and Windows Server 2008. We want to know if there´s a soulution from HP to backup a Windows 2008 Server.

An waiting for the next release 6.1 is not really a solution...

Maybe somebody from HP knows more ???

thank you very much....

Re: DP 6.0 and Windows Server 2008 client

I don't know about DP6.
I'm using DPX and it's not compatible with WS2k8 yet either.
As a temp. measure I'm running the WS2k8 backup program to save the system volume and system state to disk.
DPX can backup everything except the Windows folder, so I include the saved state.
Recovery will require an extra step, but it's better than nothing though.

Re: DP 6.0 and Windows Server 2008 client

WindowsServer2008 is not supported on DP6.0.
There is some way to backup win2008 clients if you change in the configuration file
( wNT5.0 S to wNT6.0s)BUT is not recommended.
WinServer2008 both as CM and as clint works fine in DP6.1(tested)
