symantec backup exec 11d

Created: 01 Feb 2013 | 9 comments


We are running symantec backupexec 11d on a windows 2003 server. I am trying to install remote agent to 2 windows 2008 64bit computers on my network. The install fails with error : installation failed with error 1603.

Any help would be appreciated?

either 2010 R3 or 2012 (make sure you do some research in the differences as some customers do not like 2012)

can I go straight to 2010 R3 from 11d?

11d can be directly upgraded to BE 2010 R3, no hassles. Just grab manual copies of the Data/Catalogs folders and after upgrading, run LiveUpdate to install SP2 and any subsequent updates. Once done, push-install these updates to any remote servers you might have!
