I just found out our V11 is EOL and need to do an upgrade to 12.5 ideally. I can't seem to find any support docs that go over the procedure to go to 12.5 from 11 though. Also going to transfer to a new server build which may help or hinder the upgrade process. Server 2008 to server 2016. Any help or guidance on finding the right docs would be most appreciated.

You could use migration doc - https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100003273.html
Backup (DR) method https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/doc/95957167-136587294-0/index
You can refer to these docs about the upgrade. The upgrade path is supported from 11.0.1 to 12.5.
Any required software will be installed during the 12.5 install, such as:
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (Windows Feature)
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 Full
Microsoft OLE DB Driver 18 for SQL Server (MSOLEDBSQL) (x86)
Microsoft OLE DB Driver 18 for SQL Server (MSOLEDBSQL) (x64)

Thank you! I am strugling with dead links on some of this. Your first link references a PDF doc, Migrating Enterprise Vault to 64-bit hardware.pdf714830. That link is dead and I can't seem to find it anywhere.
This page https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100037842 also loinks to a doc 100038733 that is no longer there.
Can you help with those two docs? Also trying unseuccessfully to find the "Veritas Enterprise Vault 12.5 Server Migration Wizard"
Thank you very much.

Looking into those links, but I have added the PDF file here.
The Migration Wizard is here https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/downloads/update.UPD397880 and requires you to login to download. You cannot upgrade directly from 11.0.1 to 12.5 using this method so a manual method may be best per https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100023864. This will only require one upgrade to 12.5.
