I think it is fair to say that Veeam Backup & Replication v11a (due in September of this year) will provide full Windows Server 2022 support:

-Backup as a VM (all hypervisors)

-Be on a backup proxy (Hyper-V)

-Installed upon (B&R on WS2022)

-Veeam Components installed on WS2022

That’s the MO here when it comes to platform support. That being said, it is not final till it is generally available. This was mentioned in the R&D Forum Digest this week (WS2022 support) by El G himself. I hope this helps @MicoolPaul  and @Chris.Childerhose 

Thanks for the further clarification @Rick Vanover 😁

Perfect, thanks for confirming that’s the intended plan :relaxed:

There are rumors that the free Hyper-V service will be removed in Windows Server 2022.

Sad, this was a simple testing environment for virtual systems in several windows server versions.

Yup saw that in the R&D Forums Gosteagram this morning. Do I hear KVM :)

I was surprised to this news of Hyper-V Server not continuing as a free hypervisor. 

This was, in my professional opinion, the best free hypervisor option in the market.  A game changer for ROBO/Edge, retail locations, small businesses and more.

Guess I will be keeping Win2019 in the lab then to use Hyper-V for testing and VMCE/A study.  :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’ve heard these rumours too. Apparently Hyper-V role will continue in Windows Server 2022 but Hyper-V is going to be giving way to Azure Stack!

 

Seems only fitting from the company that will make Exhange/SharePoint/Skype for Business 2022 all subscription only for their on-premises offerings…

 

Ready or not, here comes cloud! 😉

I thought .com was for Veeam.COMmunity?

TBF I say the same about Veeam Community Edition limits… We’re Veeam.com not Veeam.org

When @Gostev had not mention it in his digest, I would have missed that Microsoft does not offer a free Hyper-V with 2022 any more.

See Anton Gostev’s comment to Windows Server 2022 and ReFS Repositories:

While it goes without saying that you should not update your ReFS backup repositories to Windows Server 2022 before we deliver its official support with version 11a, there are always people who feel adventurous or just like to experiment. If you're one of those, please do stick to clean Windows Server 2022 installs for now, as there's the confirmed regression in the ReFS format upgrade code path which may leave your backup repository in the BSOD boot loop.

Keep also in mind, when upgrading ReFS, next synthetic full will not be fast-cloned but “legacy” fulls. Learned this not long ago. We re-installed Repo-Server with 2019 (2016 before). First synthetic full needs many times more time then before. Timing of the different jobs also led to the fact that it was worse.

Since the official image is out, I will be testing this via MDT/WDS soon and may end up performing an in-place upgrade soon.

Has anyone already upgraded?

We don‘t do in place upgrades in our company.

But we are testing the new edition with our applications.
