You can create and configure your job similar to the following example:

In Backup Exec 2012, every job is a policy based job by default. When you create a backup job you can add more jobs for the same server (like you used to add templets for policies).

1. Go to Backup and Restore tab.

2. Right-click on the backup job and select "Edit Backup"

3. This will take you to a screen similar to the above.

Note: By default, you will see two jobs Full and Incremental.

4. Click on Edit on the right hand-side (under Backup)

5. Delete the Incremental job using the 'x' on the top right of that template box.

6. Select "Add backup job by method" - Select Differential.

7. Configure the schedule, storage, etc and save.

As long as the model of the RDX is in the HCL of  BE 2012, it shuold work.

To backup SQL databases, you would need to purchase and install an agent for applications and databases licence.  For file backups, you would need 1 RAWS licence for each remote server/device.

Have at least 2 jobs.  One to backup SQL databases should have AOF off and the other one to backup files should have AOF on.
