SCL for Client - Windows Server 2012 R2 in Hyper-V

Not applicable

Dears,

I'm using Hyper-V 2012 for possible negotiation and have some questions.
 
1) Netbackup 7.5 or 7.6 is compatible with Windows 2012 Server R2?
2) Netbackup 7.5 or 7.6 is compatible with Hyper-V (Using as Feature of W2K12R2)?
3) Netbackup 7.5 or 7.6 is compatible with Hyper-V (Using as Hypervisor)?
 
Thanks for now.

Having run into a similar issue a while back, could someone give us a hint as to when 2012 R2 Hyper-V support might eventuate please?

I get in trouble when I try to speculate on Symantec's behalf, so I won't, but I believe from the hints that have been already posted by other folks in other threads, I would be very surprised if some sort of announcement didn't accompany the next maintenance release...but unfortunately, I don't have a firm date on WHEN that next maintenance release is coming.  So consider this answer no help at all.  :)
