Backup Exec Upgradation from BE 2010 to BE 2012

Created: 01 Aug 2013 | 2 comments


I know DLO is a separate product now and the new version of DLO is 7.5. What will happen to the DLO that is present in BE 2010 when BE 2010 is upgraded to BE 2012? Please let me know.

CraigV's picture will probably be uninstalled seeing as how BE 2010's version of DLO was installed with the base software (activating a license key!).

Best bet to upgrade to DLO 7.5 first, then upgrade to BE 2012...

Hello Shamee,
    If DLO 2010 is still present on the server then it will not allow you to upgrade to BE 2012. You will either have to upgrade DLO to DLO 7.0 or higher or uninstall DLO option completely before upgrading to BE 2012.

Please refer to the following technotes  : How to upgrade DLO when Backup Exec is being upgraded to Backup Exec 2012  : Backup Exec 2012 upgrade reports the Backup Exec Desktop and Laptop Option feature has been detected and must be migrated or uninstalled before the installation can continue.


Hope this piece of Information Helps you... and if it does then mark this response as Solution....!!!
