We have a customer using a Backup Exec 2010 R2 which is still under maintenance and no plans to  migrate to  latest version.

They planning to add a SAN Shared Storage option, Please advise if my customer will purchase a Backup Exec 2012 Enterprise Server option can this be downgrade to  a lower version (BE 2010).

And other thing where can I  request for  a evaluation keys of BE 2010 particular on Shared Storage Option, since this is  disable during demo purposes.

You can install SSO option as a trial for 30 days, no need of any evaluation keys. 

Symantce licensing team can be contacted for downgrading the licenses to work with BE 2010. But i do not think it is necessary to purchase for 2012 and downgrade to 2010. Purchase SSO for 2010 and as you have valid contract you would be eligible for free upgrade of BE to 2012.
