BE12.5 as a Media server on Win 2008 R2 is not a supported configuration.

Refer to BE12.5 scl http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH62301

Hi

As 12.5 doesn't support win2008 r2 as Supported OS for media server ,Check with Licensing and see if you can upgrade backup exec version to BE 2010 R3 as per your support contract for free or will it be a paid upgrade

Also if you plan to upgrade backup exec from 12.5 to BE 2010 from one server to another server please check link below to do it
