We have a client running Backup Exec 11d, who has just purchased a SQL Agent licence that has been downgraded to version 11d, that requires to backup SQL 2008.
The client cannot upgrade to BE 12.5, is there any work around for having 11d work with SQL 2008?

    BEWS 11D will not work with SQL 2008 .It is not compatible.

    You cannot use the sql agent on 2008 with 11D. The only way is to create dumps of the databases with the sql server manager and backup these dumps.
