Hi

Installing a full version of Backup Exec for Windows 12.5 as a media server on a Windows 2008 R2 Server is not supported.

Please check link below

Would suggest to install BE 2010 or higher version

Link to download BE 2010

BE 2010 R3  Installer - http://trialware.norton.com/files/fc/Backup_Exec_2010_13.0.5204_MultiPlatforms_Multilingual_DVD.iso
(Same can be used for SBS)

Link to download BE 2012
