thanks for the answers,

yes i know that is a seperate product that need to be install seperately (my license is out of maintence period and i can't install it on trial mode when upgrading to 7.0 SDLO)
but i need to use my DLO and rather than that do the migration to 2012.

There are couple of options

There are couple of options as I see it.

1) Contact the licensing team to check if you can obtain trial license for SDLO. If yes, run an in-place upgrade of BE-DLO to SDLO and then upgrade Backup Exec

2) Uninstall BE-DLO and run the upgrade from BE 2010 to BE 2012. You can install SDLO laters when you obtain licenses, however you would not be able to restore/import the prev version's database.
