Can Windows Server 2003 use Veritas' Backup Exec 8.6 ?


We have just upgraded our server hardware to a much more powerful one and installed with Windows server 2003 in it.  Yet, in order to save cost, I would like to know whether our previous network backup software "Veritas Backup Exec 8.6" can be used in Windows Server 2003 ?

** I'm not sure whether this question should be placed under this topic or not, but I can not locate a topic in EE that related to Backup.  Kindly please advise if I have posted in a wrong forum.  Thanks.

I have it running 2003 standard edition (both SP1 and SP2), so I suppose it would work for you too.
