"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. You will need to Stop services on backup exec. Make a copy of the Data and Catalog folders from "c:\program files\symantec\backup exec" to different location. Then follow below steps for upgrade

2. You will need to Reboot your server after the upgrade is done.
3. Run Liveupdate a couple of times until it says that there is no more updates
4. Push out the remote agents to your servers. You would need to reboot your remote servers.
