Hi all

 

Hopefully a quick answer to this, i have a Client with a server down, and i was contemplating building another server, but i only have backup exec 12.5, and the old server had version 12  (14.0.1798)

will i be able to restore data from a backup with the earlier 12 version

thanks

 

may not attempt this, as im not sure at present what card is powering the tape device, etc

No. What you refer to as BE 12 is actually BE 2012 and this is newer than BE 12.5. BE cannot restore a backup made with a newer version. If you have a 64-bit machine, you can download BE 15 from www.Backupexec.com and use that for the restore

Hi PKH

 

Thanks for quick response

In theory i could download the evalutation copy (we dont have maintenance contract) and it will read the backup created with BE2012 (server is 64 bit)
