You will need to upgrade the agents too to the same version as Backup Exec i.e 12.5

I'll wait for one more answer to tip the scales.
You can use 12.0 agents, but the new features provided with 12.5 agents will not be available. There will be no issues with basic backup and restore functionality. But, do make sure to upgrade to the latest version over a preiod of time to avoid future issues.
