I have a couple of earlier posts from January and February that discuss Symantec looking at bringing back Job-Centric jobs back as an option in Backup Exec 2012. However, it seems like this won’t be happening in the next major service pack. Symantec has announced beta testing for Service Pack 2 for Backup Exec 2012 (and Service Pack 3 for the former Backup Exec 2010).
Aside from the standard slew of hotfixes, it appears the following, at first glance, will be officially supported in both Backup Exec 2010 and 2012.
- Windows Server 2012
- SQL 2012 Service Pack 1
- SQL 2008 R2 Service Pack 2
- Exchange 2010 Service Pack 3
- VMWare VSphere 5.1
In addition Backup Exec 2012 Service Pack 2 will also support: (Backup Exec 2010 will not support these features.)
- SharePoint 2013
- Exchange 2013
Let’s hope job-centric returns in the next major release!
