i had old file server on 32 bit server that was trasnferd into  new 64 bit server.
i tried to reinstalled the backupexec but it failed, my guess i need the 64 bit version of backupexec  media server right?

you can install 32 bit versions of  programs on windows 2008 x64.  Are you working with server 2008?

I'd check your install logs and see if any of the errors you catch match posts in the backup exec knowledge base: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=home

Thanks!

Looks like you're using a version not supported on 2008.  If you can, grab a supported version from this list: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH70425

If you have a support contract, upgardes are included automatically.  Otherwise, looks like it's not supported.  

If the needs aren't too complex, native backup provided with server 2008 is also very nice.  It even creates a complete image of the computer so that you can restore the server to dissimilar hardware.
