How can I export BE 2012 license file

Created: 15 Sep 2013 | 6 comments

I'm trying to migrate my existing BE 2012 server to a new server. I'm doing the steps on the following link, . However  BESERNUM.XML file doesn't exist anywhere on the old server. I checked under all users and searched the BESERNUM.XML under the whole C:\ drive but no luck. How can export BE 2012 license file? I have attached the content of Backup Exec under C:\Users\All Users\Symantec

Yes I saw that folder however I was wondering if there is a XML file that I can use? I guess these licenses  would do it just fine.

Pre BE2012 versions generate XML files for the installed license keys.

If you have the original SLF files, just re-apply them on your new server.

You will find .slf files (license files) in the C:\ProgramData\Symantec Shared\Licenses folder

Backup Exec 2012 does nor create BESERNUM.XML file as it used to be in previous versions of Backup exec. You need to copy the SLF file from C:\Program Data\Symantec Shared\Licenses.
