Can I install veritas Backup Exec 16 on Windows Server 2012?

Level 2


Thanks for any help. I want to install eritas Backup Exec 16 on Windows Server 2012 on VMWare.  So I run the environment check before I install it. But it shows some errors. It fails on "Windows Server service check" , " Registry Permissions Check" and  "SQL Instance Bkupexec Connection Check" as the picture below.  How can I make them works?


So now  I'm not sure if I can install veritas Backup Exec 16 on Windows Server 2012 or if I should do something before I install eritas Backup Exec 16. Any one can tell me how to solve this? Thanks for any advice.

If you click on each failure point and/or scroll down do you see more info?


Also if intending to write to tape - then DO NOT use a Virtual Machine as your Backup Exec server.


Thanks so much for your reply. And here are the failed informations. Any advice will be appreciated.

Did you get this figured out? I'm running BE 2014 on Windows 2012, so I would think BE 2016 will run. Did you get the server service running? Also, you are installing as an admin, right?
