Backup Exec 2012 Jobs on 2010 version

Created: 19 Aug 2013 | 2 comments

We have upgraded 1 of 2 different Backup Exec Servers to 2012 version, the other server is still 2010 R3. I was just curious if it is possible to restore backups done on version 2012 on the 2010 server? Mostly out of curiosity in case something happens to the 2012 server until the 2010 server is upgraded.

 

Thanks,

You would not be able to restore backupsets that were created using backup exec 2012 with backup exec 2010..

I hope this posting was helpful

You would get very limited restore capabilities for BE 2012 backup sets using Be 2010. For details, loot in the "known limitations" section of this technote.
