This document provides information on the list of Operating Systems which provide application level restores in CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup.
CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup can restore data at application level granularity on computers running all operating systems that are supported by CA ARCserve D2D excluding the following operating systems:
Windows XP x86 and x64
Windows Vista x86 and x64
Windows 7 x86 and x64
Note: CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup behaves in this manner because VMware does not support creating application level meta data on the excluded operating systems. (For more information, see Working with Microsoft Shadow Copy in the VMware Virtual Disk API Programming Guide.) However, CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup can restore data on the excluded operating systems at file system and folder level granularity.
For a complete list of the operating systems supported by CA ARCserve D2D, see the CA ARCserve D2D Compatibility Matrix.
If application consistancy is required for the above Operating Systems, please use CA ARCserve D2D to protect the Virtual Machine.
