This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi All,

Thank you in advance for any help. We are moving to a Netbackup solution and I'd like to have confirmed the capability of Backup Exec 2012 for restoring data from tapes from different versions

The intention is run BE2012 in order to restore from (archive) tapes backed up by versions BE2012, 2010 and 12.0.

I'll only be restoring files and SQL, is this possible?

If not, can I run multiple versions of BE on the same Win2008R2 server?

If not, can anyone propose a optimal solution to prevent the running of 3 servers for each version and tape drives?

Again, many thanks for any advice.

Backup Exec 2012 should be able to restore data from BE 2010 and BE 12.0 with the exception os SQL 7.0. The files and folders restore should not be a problem at all.

I think the best way for you to check is by performing a test restore.
