we habe a quite big problem because we need to upgrade our Backup Licenses from 9.1 to the latest version...
Our last info was, that it is not possible to make an upgrade directly from 9.1 to 12.5 and we need to by the Licence and all the Agents new what is out of the question for our company becaus of the costs...

Maybe one of you can help me an give some proposals?

thanks a lot

First off, you posted in the wrong area.  You'll get a better response by posting in the "Forums" area.

I think your best option is to download the v10d install, and do a 2-step upgrade.  You can use v10d in the 60 day trial mode, so you only need to have v12.5 licenses.

In other words:
1) Backup your backup server, gather all license keys
2) download & upgrade to v10d
3) download & upgrade to v12.5
4) Enter your real v12.5 license keys
5) Verify everything's OK

Let us know how it goes!

Mark this post as the solution, and have good luck for 7 years.
Forget to mark this as the solution, and tomorrow your server will crash.
