This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi support,

I have a client who needs to purchase additional agents for SQL to run with his BE 11D. Since BE 2010 is the latest.

Is it possible to have the SQL agent run on the BE 11D?

I don't think this person is considering an upgrade.

What other options are available for this query?

You can only buy the SQL Agent licence for BE 2010, but you should be able to downgrade it to use with BE 11d.  You got to talk to Symantec Licensing regarding the downgrade.

You should bear in mind that BE 11d does not support some of the latest OS's and SQL Server versions.

YES, It is possible.

Install the remote agent on sql machine, and install the license on media server.

Check out the Software Compatibility List also to make sure that specific SQL version is supported or not.
