Does my system support SBE 2012?

This is using MS Windows 2003, standard edition 32-bit. 4 GB RAM, and plenty of hard disk space. We want to install Symantec Backup Exec 2012 on this server for backing up the server's E: drive, in which it is 10 TB in size.

Just wondering any problem to have the SBE 2012 install on this server? Does SBE support the current OS 32-bit?

Thanks in advance.

quoted from the pdf :
minimum requirement : Memory 1 GB RAM required

2 GB RAM or more recommended for better performance. RAM requirements may vary depending on the operations performed, the options
installed, and the specific computer configuration. See the Administrator's Guide for specific memory requirements per agent or option.
 I hope that helps
According to Symantec's Backup Exec 2012 Software Compatibility List (SCL) , (  )
yes, you can install it without any problem .

You can't increase RAM in a 32-bit system beyond 4Gb as it can't see it or use it, even if the motherboard supports it.

Windows 2003 Server support expires tomorrow, so you may want to be thinking about changing the Server OS to a newer version soon.
