Postby Joseph S. Klein » Mon Jul 07, 2014 7:47 am

Hello Dear,

I have Backup Exec 12.5 is running on Windows Server 2003. I have bought the new server that server is running Windows Server 2012 and Backup EXEC 2014. I want backup data on the old server (2003 and 12.5) and restore data on the new server (2012 and BE2014).
Please help me.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

The best method is to upgrade existing server from 12.5 to 2014 first. Backup Exec 2014 support only Windows 2003 R2 as Vjware noted above.
There are manual migration technotes but it can be complicated. Backup Exec 2014 introduces DLM changes. If you use BEMIG to migrate the
database you wont see how your jobs will be affected until after the BEMIG process is done.

Thanks,
Tansenn
