Backup Exec 2010 and 2010 R2 Software Compatibility List (SCL)

Introduction
Listed below are the available operating systems, platforms and applications specifically tested by Symantec to be compatible with all versions of Backup Exec ™ 2010
and Backup Exec ™ 2010 R2.

For information specific to Backup Exec Continuous Protection Server, please see: <http://support.symantec.com/docs/285788>

The following guidelines regarding this Software Compatibility List (SCL) should be understood:

1. Symantec support of 3rd party manufacturer products

Symantec will cooperate with 3rd party vendors, and attempt to assist in the diagnosis of problems found between the 3rd party and Symantec products. Symantec
Technical Support on the combination of Symantec and 3rd party products listed in this document is conditional on the 3rd party product being supported by the original
manufacturer or vendor. If the original vendor has ceased providing support for a version of their product, Symantec also will no longer be able to provide support on
that product in combination with our products.

2. Minor dot(.)version support: The contents of this document including 3rd party applications, databases, operating systems, in combination with Symantec products
represent what has been tested in Symantec labs, or in Symantec-supervised partner labs, but is not intended to be a complete list of supported products and versions.
Manufacturers of these products may frequently release minor version updates to their products as maintenance during their product's normal life cycle. (e.g. version
1.x.x.x) that may not be explicitly listed in this document. In these situations where the base or major version of the product is listed as supported in this document but
the minor maintenance update is not, Symantec will provide "reasonable effort" support on these versions until specific testing of them has completed.

3. Not every combination of software and hardware is tested. Symantec provides reasonable efforts to qualify Backup Exec with as many different operating
systems, service packs, hardware platforms, database application service packs, and other applications as possible. However, due to the number of combinations, it is
not possible to test all combinations for compatibility. If a particular service pack or version is not listed as specifically tested by Symantec, it may work fine, but has not
been explicitly tested by Symantec with Backup Exec.

4. To request additions to this list: If a particular platform is not currently listed as being supported, a request for additions to this list can be made through the
Symantec Product Enhancement Web site: <http://enhancement.symantec.com>

5. The Backup Exec 2010 and 2010 R2 Remote Agent for Windows Systems and NetWare Servers is strongly recommended for use with Backup Exec 2010 and 2010
R2; the Backup Exec 12.5 remote agent (with latest service pack) is also compatible for the purpose of rolling upgrades with the exception of any caveats listed in the
notes. The Backup Exec 12.5 Remote Agent for Windows is supported but not recommended for use with Backup Exec 2010 and 2010 R2. Please see
<http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/277323> for caveats when in a CASO environment.

6. The Remote Administrator can be installed on any operating system listed in the "Media Server Operating System Compatibility" section.
