I had to remove and reinstall my backupexec 12.5 software on my dell server
i had a problem with .net framework
now that i have reinstalled i need to enter my license key
this was purchased from dell when i bought my dell server
i cant find any documentation on this
is it possible this key would still be stored somewhere on the server that i could get it back
or how would i get this key

I am not sure this will work since I have never tried it, but you could look for a file called "besernum.eml" in either "C:\windows\" or "C:\windows\system32." However, if you purchased it from Dell, they may have a record of the license key they sold. Another thought, did you register it for the initial support when you purchased it? If so, then Symantec would have a record of it.

You can also try Berlac - it will do an audit of your installed software and retrieve licences as well.

If you hadn't noticed, I mentioned Dell may have your codes in the first post. Thanks for considering that mention.
