I have an older Windows 2000 server that has Backup Exec Version 10 running our daily tape backups. I recently purchased Backup Exec version 12 and a cartridge backup solution to back up my all 3 of my servers instead of just the data. The other two servers are running Windows Server 2003. The backups work fine but I receive the error that I should upgrade my older remote agents to 11d. It states I will not be able to restore individual files until I do so. I tested it and I get an "access denied to the remote agent" when I try to restore a single file. Now I would like to install the newer Remote Agents. If I have the licenses, can I just remote install my version 12 agents on top of my older version 10 ones? Will this cause any conflicts? Do I need to uninstall my older version first?
