8.1 / 8.0.1 is still in Beta testing.

I received this email 2 days ago:

" NetBackup beta (8.0.1 Beta5) is available for download on the VxBeta (https://vxbeta.veritas.com) website. "

Will 8.1 support VMWare Linux XFS file systems?

NetBackup 8.3.0.1 on Solaris 11, writing to Data Domain 9800 6.2.1.0
duplicating via SLP to LTO5 in SL8500 via ACSLS

No it will not. We asked the question about XFS at Vision...at least not from a file level recovery perspective.

Seems not.

See Table 12  'VMware guest operating systems supported for file-level recovery' in latest Statement of Support for NetBackup 7.x and 8.x in a Virtual Environment.

Table 13 shows XFS - Planned for a future release.
