Migration of 2012 to another server on a different OS Version
I am looking to Migrate our Backup Exec 2010 to a new server. I know the title says 2012, wich is the final version I would like to be on with the new server when it is all said and done. For that, I was planning to upgrade the current install to 2012 (currently on a Windows 2008 32-bit box), then migrate everything to the new server (which will be on Windows 2008 R2). I have read through several older articles on migration, but one thing they all had in common was that the envirement needed to be the same (down to the location of the data and catalog folder).
Any advice? If there is a better way, I would be interested in hearing it.
