Some vRanger features and functions have requirements or limitations that do not apply to the rest of the product. Review this list to ensure that all requirements are understood. The features and functions described here are:
For basic backup and replication functions, vRanger supports any Guest OS that is supported by VMware. For a complete list, see the VMware Guest Operating System Installation Guide.For advanced functions, such as file-level restore (FLR) or additional application consistency, see the requirements in the following topics:
• The VM hardware cannot be changed during replication. For this reason, the VM must be at a hardware version level that is compatible with both the source and target servers. The VMware® ESXi™ version of the source and target hosts does not matter, as long as the VM hardware is supported on both ESXi versions. For more information on VM hardware versions and compatibility, see the VMware documentation at https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/.
• Ensure that the physical server is running a supported operating system. Refer to Supported platforms for physical machine backup for more information.
