Backup exec 2010 Move from server 2007 to server 2016

Hi All, 

Apologies if I posted in the incorrect forum. Bit of an odd question so please bear with me on this one. 

I am working for an MSP and one of our clients who we recently upgraded to server 2016 from server 2007 wants to keep using the same backup method. Herein lies the problem. 

They are currently using an external drive attached to the server (no matter how many times we have warned them against it) and are using Symantec (yes old name I know) Backup exec 2010. 

My question is the following, If they can find the old licence and disks will backup exec even run on server 2016? 

Thanks in Advance

Backup Exec 2010 is not compatible with windows 2016. We would recommend BE 20.1
