I try to upgrade a BackupExec 10d -> 2012 on a 2003 SBS, but it fails.
I was able to upgrade 10d->11d and 11d->12.5 without any problem, but 12.5->2012 fails with:

08-12-2012,21:20:29 : Attaching BEDB to SQL Server.
08-12-2012,21:20:29 : EXEC sp_attach_db 'BEDB',@filename1 = N'D:\Programme\Symantec\Backup Exec\NT\Data\BEDB_Dat.mdf', @filename2 = N'D:\Programme\Symantec\Backup Exec\NT\Data\BEDB_Log.ldf'
+ 08-12-2012,21:20:29 : V-225-205: ERROR -1: Database 'BEDB' already exists. ***To search for information about this error, click here
+ 08-12-2012,21:20:29 : Error prepping migration.
08-12-2012,21:20:29 : Migration failed returning error: 1603

Symnatec's KB says nothing about the failure.
