This issue has been solved. See solution.


we use backup exec 11d and has been used for tape backup, and we plan to upgrade to version 2012.

the question, whether the result of the backup (tape) from version 11d can be restored in the 2012 version?

You should be able to restore the tape from BE 11d using BE 2012.

Before you do your upgrade, you might want to read my article

Note that you would not be able to upgrade directly to BE 2012, you would need to upgrade to either BE 12.5 or BE 2012 before you can upgrade to BE 2012.  Also, you would need a new set of keys for BE 2012.  The upgrade is free if you are on a current maintenance contract.
