Upgrade BackupExec

Can I upgrade BackupExec 2010 to 2012 directly, or I need to upgrade it to 2010R2 first ?

After the upgrade, do I need to upgrade / repush the agent to each member servers.

I did the upgrade from 2010 to 2012 without any trouble except that, if you are using a volume with different folders destination for backup, you are going to lose this option in 2012. For example, on the X drive, you have two backup destination, let say "PST files" and "Data users" after the migration you can restore from the old backup but can't use it this way anymore. For Symantec, in 2012, one volume = one destination! I hope I am clear enough... Regarding the agent, I can't answer since it was just one server.

What do you mean one volume one destination ? Are you talking about one backup-to-disk folder to backup one volume (eg D: drive) ?


Any one know whehter we need to reinstall / push the agent again ?

yes, that's one backup-to-disk folder to only one drive. You can't have multi backup-to-disk folder to one drive in 2012 version. I had to change my backup strategy for that...
