Backup Exec Media Server installation on a Virtual machine is not recommended. However, with a complete SDR enabled backup, you should be able to restore it to a physical machine.

Please Note: I dont want to restore backupexec server 2012 itself. I want to restore a backup which exist on backupexec2012

You would need to backup this VM as if it is a physical machine and you need to enable SDR. With this backup, you can then use SDR to restore the VM to a physical machine. You cannot do a SDR restore if you backup the VM as a VM

SOLUTION

Suppose the VM is Server A, go to the Backup and Restore tab and add Server A as a remote server. If you have not already installed the remote agent in Server A, then push out the remote agent to Server A. Create a backup job for Server A. select the entire server and you will see a green SDR light on to of the selection. Run the job.
