Backup Exec 2012 -- Windows Server 2012 R2 ?

I am upgrading to Windows Server 2012 R2, but read lots of articles stating that my existing Symantec Backup Exec 2012 software might not work correctly, therefore I called and emailed my Symantec rep, but he just wants me to pay $$ to upgrade to Backup Exec 2015, stating that Backup Exec 2012 might not work.

1. Is anyone running
    Symantec Backup Exec 2012
    on Windows Server 2012 R2 ?

2. If so, what issues are you having ?

"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.

Do you have the ability to build a test server and install Symantec on it?
If so I would do this to a POC and if it passes say FU to your Symantec Rep for steering you in that direction.
