I currently have Backup Exec 12 on a WIndows 2003 server. I need to restore the data from an LTO3 tape with Oracle information, that was backed up using ArcServe. Can the latest version of ArcServe and Backup Exec be installed successfully on the same Windows 2003 server or are there known issues?

With certain limitations Backup Exec can restore the Arcserve session:

Thanks Kieran. I should have given the errors that I received when I tried to catalog the LTO3 tape in Backup exec:

Cataloging SW Compressed ArcServe Tape. Backup exec does not support this operation
For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-33975

Catalog- / Unexpected end of backup set encountered on IBM 1. V-79-57344-34004 - End of data set was unexpectedly encountered.

Catalog- Null backupset. Possible reason: Cataloging SW Compressed ArcServe Tape. Backup exec does not support this operation

Catalog- /oracle Null backupset. Possible reason: Cataloging SW Compressed ArcServe Tape. Backup exec does not support this operation

Try again (after posting in the wrong answer... too many open windows!)

Actually I should've read the article more closely myself. It does state that some databases cannot be read and you clearly state you want to restore Oracle...

Accordingly I did some more digging and found an interesting blog that indicates you CAN run them on the same Server and explains a quick way to enable / disable the services:

I hope THIS helps!
