I downloaded and tried to install VembuBDR (downloaded from this link: https://www.vembu.com/free-windows-se...) on Server 2008 Standard, but it says "Server installation is supported only on Windows 2008 R2, Windows 2012, and Windows 2012 R2 Server". Your website says though that it supports all versions from Server 2003 SP2 to Server 2016? Is there any way I can get it to install on 2008? Thanks so much! -Steve

We believe that you are trying to install Vembu BDR software in your Windows Server 2008 system to perform disk image backups. To achieve your requirement you have to deploy both Vembu BDR server and Vembu ImageBackup software in your environment where Vembu BDR and Vembu ImageBackup will act as Backup Server and Backup Agent respectively.

Please follow the below steps to perform disk image backups.

  1. Install Vembu BDR software in your environment first. The supported platforms are,

Windows Server 2016

Windows Server 2012 R2

Windows Server 2012

Windows Server 2008 R2

Ubuntu 16.04

Ubuntu 14.04

Ubuntu 12.04

2 Once Vembu BDR Backup Server deployed, please login into webconsole and you can find 'Download' option in top right corner of console from where you can download DiskImage Backup installer.

3 Now install Vembu ImageBackup software in your Windows Server 2008 system and then you can configure disk image backups from Vembu ImageBackup webconsole.
