Backup Exec 2012 Agents 2010

This issue has been solved. See solution.


Working on upgrading our backup Exec servers from 2010 to 2012 at 3 different sites.  I was able to complete the first site media server and agents but it took all day.  What I am wondering is, Can I update the Media serve to 2012 and then take my time updating each agent server?  Will my jobs still run if the agent is 2010 and media server 2012?

This is not something that I plan to make long term, I just need a way to keep up on this project while completing other tasks.

Thank you

Yes, this will work, but your jobs will get a message that the remote agent needs to be updated.

Symantec always recommends to update the agents as soon as possible.

When you use older agents, you would not get the benefits of any enhancements or new support provided by the upgraded version of BE.
