  1. Be 6.11 build 204 Compatable with WinXP

    I am using the back-up exec on an Win2000 Pro machine and would like to
    back-up a Windows XP (home) client machine as well as the several Win2k and
    Win98 machines connected to the peer to peer network.

    Is BE 6.11 compatible with Windows XP home?


    Thank you!

    WinXP requires v8.6 build 3878 as a minimum
    Win2k requires v8.0 as a minumum

    Thank you Ken, but I already have several machines using Win2k and BE 6.11.
    I spoke with Veritas support and they confirmed that Win2k is fine with this
    version. I neglected to ask about XP though.


    thanks!

    If I were you, I'd get that statement concerning v6.11 and W2K in writing.
    The first time you try to do a disaster recovery type restore, you're gonna
    get a BIG suprise. (Unless you are only concerned about user data backups
    not system type backups)

    For disaster recovery I use (plan to use if needed) a Norton Ghost image to
    get the system up and running then do a restore of the operating system and
    user files overtop of any files that are older as required.

    My server configuration doesn't change much except for Exchange 5.5 email
    information but my client files change frequently so I thought the tape
    would be okay? What do you think?

    In the past I have had problems with Win2K workstations running 6.11 and I
    installed a minimal version of Win2K in an alternate directory, restored the
    original hard disk from the tape then manually edited the boot files to
    point to the old installation again... a bit slow but it has worked in the
    past. My new (and untested) plan is to use the Ghost image then restore
    changed files over top of older files.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated, I volunteer for a non-profit agency
    and the executive director doesn't see the need to spend $500 (they also
    have a tight budget) on a backup software upgrade. I need to compensate for
    her shortsightedness and have an alternative plan available in case of
    disaster.

    Thanks!
