License File for Backup Exec 2012 Migration
I am currently running Backup Exec 2010 R3 SP2 on Server 2003 Enterprise SP2 x86. I am in the process up updating BE on this server to 2012 SP2. I then plan on installing BE 2012 SP2 on a virtual Server 2008 R2 Standard x64 system, and migrating the instance of BE on the 2003 server to the 2008 server. During the installation on the 2008 server, I will, as always with BE 2012, be prompted to specify a serial number or to import a license (.SLF) file. The installer will then attempt to verify the license file by connecting to Symantec over the Internet. If I use the same serial number and/or .SLF file on the 2008 server as I used on the 2003 server, will the installer successfully verify the license, or will it reject it because it was used on the 2003 server? If it will reject it, what is the best practice for installing BE 2012 on a new server for the purpose of migrating an existing instance of BE to it?
