Backup Exec 2010 R3 and BE 2012 both support Server 2012 for backups as a Agent after installing the Beta service pack. However, Server 2012 is still unsupported as Media Server.

...not as a media server. You can only install RAWS, as per Jaydeep. Support for Win2K12 as a media server will come later.

Thanks!
