    NOTE

    * Requires ARCserve Backup r15 SP1

    In this matrix, x64 indicates Advanced Micro Devices AMD64 and Intel64 processors. IA-64 indicates Intel Architecture-64 Itanium and Itanium 2 processors.

    This matrix is valid for the localized product(s) available for this release, unless otherwise specified, or unless restrictions/limitations are explicitly specified.

    Applications that CA ARCserve Backup supports (via an application agent) on a particular OS running on a physical machine are also supported on the same OS running as a guest on a VMware server/Desktop Virtualization Product environment, Hyper-V.

    Installing ARCserve Backup r15.0 in a Guest OS on Hyper-V Server/ESX Server is supported for disk based devices.

    Installing ARCserve Backup r15.0 in a Guest OS on ESX Server is supported for Stand-alone tape devices.

    All Components supports at base level of Operating System also except Windows 2003.

    As noted in the Readme, CA ARCserve Backup requires Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1, 7.0, 8.0, 9.0 are supported.

    Note for Enterprise Module:

    Windows 2008 Support are not applicable for IBM 3494, Serverless Backup Option.

    64 bit support is not applicable for Serverless Backup Option.
    Windows 2008 Support and 64 bit support for Image Option is provided from r15 SP1.

    Note for TLO:

    1. Tape RAID is part of TLO but it is not supported on IA64 environment.
    2. OLO is part of TLO, but it is not supported on 64-bit(x64/IA64) environments.

    Note for Disaster Recovery Option:

    • iSCSI recognizes system LUNs during booting and non-system LUNs after booting. CA ARCserve Backup Disaster Recovery recovers system LUN only when the iSCSI boot environment is built by multiple LUNs. After performing disaster recovery, you must restore other data volumes using a restore job.

    • When the NIC driver for the iSCSI disk is included in the machine specific disk, then that driver may not be recognized by the DR wizard. CA ARCserve Backup disaster recovery recognizes the driver included in the operating system media if you do not include it in the machine specific disk.

    Note for VMware ESX, GSX Server, VMware Server and VMware Workstation, Xen Server 5.0,5.5, Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V:

    VMware ESX, GSX Server, VMware Server, Xen and Workstation support with respect to Guest Operating system editions and Service Packs remains the same as VMware/Hyper-V supported OS Editions and Service Packs. However, CA ARCserve supported Physical OS edition always supersedes VMware/Hyper-V/Citrix supported guest operating system.

    All versions/editions of operating systems supported by VMware for VCBHyper-V are supported by CA ARCserve Agent for Virtual Machines.

    Note for ARCserve Database:

    CA ARCserve Backup r15 Base supports Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Edition, as ARCserve Database, on Windows Storage Server 2008 as described in [Supported ARCserve database].
