Recently I had installed Sysmantec Backup Exec 2012 to Windows Server 2008 R2. Current envirinement I've Symantec Backup Exec 2010 which is no longer use. I tried to install license using Backup Exec 2010 but its failed.
My quiestion is, it possible to install Symantec Backup Exec 2010 license into new Backup Exec 2012?
Check the forum, hope it answer your question
No BE 2010 licenses cannot be used for BE 2012. You would have to upgrade your licenses by contacting licensing team and once they are upgraded to BE 2012 you can use them
BE 2012 used SLF keys for activating the S/W as like other earlier version never used to use SLF keys.
Please check link http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH178483
To contact licensing please check link
Hope that helps
Below is the status of my Backup Exec 2012 server. The Backup Exec already expired. When I tried to activate using serial number Backup Exec 2010 failed with "The serial number (s) enttered could not be validated". Only for software maintanance able to activated with successfuly.
I tried to configured backup for file server but when the backup is running I found that the job backup has failed.

EDITED as the information was already given previously (TA)
You need to upgrade your Licence key 2010 to 2012
