BackupExec Update 12.5 -> 2012 fails

Hi,

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.
Does anyone have an idea whats going wrong?

Can two media servers use same SQL instance for database storage?

Changing instance of SQL installation - need to reconnect BackupExec 12d

Thanks Rancy,

your answer does not really address my problem:
- I do not change Server or OS
- I do not have 2 media servers using th same instance
I simply want to upgrade inplace from 12.5->2012.
