Restoring data from Symantec Backup Exec 2015 after migrating from 12.5

Hello, I need to upgrade my backup software as soon as possible. However, there is one concern.

We currently are running SYM BE 12.5 on a x86 2K3 server. We want pilot and utimately purchase SYM BE 2015 on a 2K8 server. If possible and we can migrate the database from 12.5 to 2015 - which is a big jump in versions - will I be able to restore jobs from my old LTO 3 tapes which were backed up using the previous version?

I know my new LTO5 tapes can read LTO3, but I am not sure if the database/2015 SYM BE version supports legacy restores from a previous DB.

My concern is loosing legacy capabilities in case we have to exhume a decade of archives.

Many thanks,
