We are migrating from Be 12.5 to Net Backup 7.1. Has anyone done this and if so how did the import of Backup Exec tapes proceed? Have followed the instrucitons but the import is incomplete and am unable to perform restores. Would really like to talk to someone that has done this.

Thanks for the information. I tried to do the import at at first it appeared to be successful. Imported one tape and then ran step 2. the job ran for a while and finished but when I check the tape it still showed 0 on usage. I did step 1 on the second tape and when I tried to do step2 it gave me an error saying that step 1 had not been run on the tape.
Ed, I hate the be the bearer of bad news but I believe BETR support stopped with BE 12 and was never certified (and probably doesn't work) with 12.5.
Both TECH125836 (linked above) and the 7.1 Admin Guides stop at BE12 in their mention of support of BETR:
