Connecting To BE 2010 R3 from BE 2012 - Could not connect to net.tcp?
I need to copy a number of backup jobs & policies from a BE 2010 R3 server to a BE 2012 server. However when I try to connect to the BE 2010 from BE 2012 I get an error:
Could not connect to net.tcp://backupexec2010:50104/BEMservice/serverdata. The connection attempt lasted for a time span of 00:00:02.0002000. TCP error code 10061: no connection could be made because the target machine is actively refused it 10.10.0.50: 50104.
I've tried using hostname, FQDN, IP address, I've disabled Symantec Endpoint Protection, checked the BE services are running etc. Still fails!
Obviously I can't go the other way, as BE 2010 can't manager BE 2012. But can BE 2012 connect to a BE 2010 R3 server? BE 2010 R3 can connect to older versions of BE, like 12.5! Would be a real pain if we can't copy jobs/policies between BE servers!
