Hi All,


Can i use SSR 2011 disk to restore my server from backup which i have taken using SSR2013 different version on Windows Server 2008 R2?


And same SSR2011 recovery disk i want use to restore Windows 2012 R2 backup?


Reason: SSR2013 is installed on both Windows OS 2008 R2 and 2012 R2 but dont have recovery disk.

That MAY work but it is not officially supported.

No. Windows 2012 R2 was never supported with SSR 2011. Check the SCL for details: http://www.veritas.com/docs/000013002

Thanks.

i tried SSR2011 disk for windows 2008 R2 it works.

I downloaded SSR 2013 R2 trial and created recovery disk for windows 2012 R2 so it will work.

do i need new license for SSR 2013 R2 or upgrade license of 2013?

Regards,

Agha

Why 2013 R2? Latest version is VSR 16:

Thanks,

Why 2013 R2? Latest version is VSR 16:

because it is also compatible with windows 2012 R2 server.

do i need upgrade license from 2013 to 16 OR new license?

Well, if you are upgrading it's logical to upgrade to the current latest version - and that is VSR 16. That was my point.

I think you'll need to contact our customer care team to answer you last question:
