No this would be unsupported.  Backup Exec 12.0 will support up to Windows 2008  see:http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH56442 

You can't install the remote agent on Windows 2012 and Windows 2012r2 wont be supported until Backup Exec 2014 is released.

...BE 2014 is deep in Beta testing so it should be released in the near-future.

Thanks!
