Backup Exec 2012 health check guide


i'm a newbie to this backup exec 2012, and recently we have active contract on supporting this Backup Exec 2012.  By supporting this, we need to perform health check or software preventive maintenance on the servers equipped with backup exec 2012 on quarterly basis.  Just want to know that whether there are some guidelines or procedures/steps on what we need to include in the health check such as services, connections, patches? Please share with me if anyone know how to prepare a backup exec 2012 health check checklist in order to perform the preventive maintenance for the servers.  Thanks
