I have Windows Server Enterprise 2003 and Symantec Backup Exec 12 installed on it. There is also Ultrium LTO-3, but damaged. I'm purchasing new server Windows Server 2008 Standard as second server in the system. Is it possible to install current Symantec Backup Exec 12 on new server (make software migration) ?
New server will be also a backup server and backup media will be a new internal Ultrium LTO-3 on it. What kind of Symantec software do I have to purchase for old server to be able make a backups from it to new Ultrium on  new Windows Server 2008 Standard  ?

According to the SCL Backup Exec 12 supports Server 2008 but it does not support Server 2008 R2.

In order to use a tape drive you need to install the Backup Exec Media Server on the same server as the tape drive.

If the new tape drive is installed in the new Server 2008 computer then you will also need to install the Backup Exec Media Server on this computer. You will then be able to backup the Server 2003 computer by installing the remote agent on it. Assuming you have no need to backup things like SQL and Exchange then you will only need to purchase an additional Remote Windows Agent to do this.

Any decent software reseller should be able to clarify exact licensing needs if you explain exactly what you are doing.
