NetVault support policies

The Quest Product Lifecycle and Support Services Guidelines detailing End-of-Support-Life (EOSL) procedures for all product lines are available online. The Product Life Cycle tables for NetVault and NetVault SmartDisk are also available online.

Quest offers an Early Adopter (EA) Support level for NetVault with applicable qualifications. For the supported combinations, see the various tables within this guide.

Early Adopter (EA) Support:

Additional support definitions used throughout this guide might include:

Also, an individual manufacturer’s End-of-Life (EOL) and EOSL product-support policy and statements supersede any support implied directly or indirectly by the information within this guide.

In addition to what is listed in this guide, Quest provides NetVault support for host operating systems and applications where the following criteria have been met:

Best reasonable effort (BRE) support refers to the lengths to which Quest Support can go to assist in issues with versions of third-party operating systems, platforms, databases, and applications that are supported by the Quest product but are no longer supported by the vendor. It applies to the following scenarios:

We at Quest encourage you to upgrade your unsupported operating system, platform, database, or application to a fully supported version.

A NetVault application plug-in’s limited-support start date and EOSL date are the same as the latest major or minor NetVault version it is supported with per this guide. Each fully supported version of NetVault limits Full Support of a plug-in version to n and n-1 major plug-in releases as determined by n; in this case, n is the latest major plug-in version supported by that NetVault major release. After a major plug-in release becomes n-2, it enters LS for one year. After the one year passes, the plug-in reaches EOSL and support is discontinued for that plug-in version.

NetVault Server and Client components are supported when running in a virtual machine (VM) as long as NetVault is running in a hypervisor guest OS that is officially supported by NetVault. Supported hypervisor programs are: KVM, Hyper-V, Oracle VM server, VMware ESXi, and Xen.

Additional notes:

Using the Plug-in for FileSystem on the physical hypervisor server machine to perform image-level backups of the VM is not supported. Installing the Plug-in for Hyper-V or Plug-in for VMware on the physical machine to perform image-level backups of the VM is required.

Processor types and bit modes

The following table explains the nomenclature used throughout this guide to represent various types of architecture. When the processor supports both 32- and 64‑bit operating systems and applications but a specific bit mode is required, the bit mode is called out in parentheses; for example, x86‑64 (64‑bit).
