HI ,


Still there is no support for installing Backup Exec 2012 on windows server 2012 as media server.

Many cusomers are waiting as they have stoped windows upgradation on BE server.




Hello Sagar,

Backup Exec 2014(which is in second stage of Beta testing) would be supporting installation of Backup Exec on a Windows Server 2012(as a media server). So far the test results have been positive and we should be releasing the final product soon. We appreciate your patience and hope to provide you the best!

For more details please refer to the following:

Yes still no support for Server 2012 as a Media Server. Unfortunatly we could not put off our server upgrades any longer, and have swithced to a competitors product that is doing a GREAT job for our Backup Recovery DR needs.

We also are in the process of moving away from BEXEC 2012 for this reason no Media Server support.


Give us a date!!!

Hi Amy,

When we can expect Backup Exec 2014 Release.



@BalaP - The release is on target for GA next month. We expect to make an announcement about the exact date shortly.



Thanks for updating....

we have new 2012 R2 servers, with SQL 2012, as it stands, we have just installed SP4, can we now backup these servers, or do we have to wait for BE 2014 (or alternative options).



Hi Lain,


With reference to SCL  and SP4 you can install windows agent in windows 2012 server and can backup SQL 2012 databases.



ok was holding off as long as possible for the next upgrade/SP as i was told that it can't backup 2012R2 servers just now, which is causing us a problem with our new AX2012 project and the new VMs built.

Expected release date for Backup Exec 2014 is next month
