Hi all, a customer of mine needs to upgrade their old BackupExec 9 software. Is it possible to upgrade this to BackupExec version 2010 directly? Or do I need to uninstall the old software first and then install the new version. I looked for a best practice for this, but could not find any. Thanks all.

Not directly no.  You can only do direct upgrades from v11d.

You can however do a multistep upgrade. Follow this procedure.
