If you want to migrate from same version of Backup Exec but on different server then please refer to the following technote which gives step by step process: : How to migrate (move) Backup Exec from one system to another with the same version of BE, Windows and same or different computer names.

Note that BE 2010 R1, R2 and R3 are not considered as same versions but are different versions of Backup Exec though they are from BE 2010 family.

So if you are migrating from one BE version to another then follow the technote given below: : How to migrate from Backup Exec from one version to an another on different server with a different server name.

Thank You sush.

I have another question if u can help a little.

I have a upgrade version of backup exec 2010 at my old server.

Before it was BE 12 and i upgrade it to BE2010.

Can i install that upgrade version at  some other server as new installation.

because i have winserver 2008 at new server so its not possible to migrate.

and i will decommissioned the old server.

Kindly advice!!
