Symantec Backup Exec 2012 install on Windows 2012

This issue has been solved. See solution.
Hey!
There is a backup server (Windows 2012) and next VMware Agent is running on Windows 2012 and 2008.
We have 3 licenses.
- Symantec Backup Exec 2012 Server, 
- Symantec Backup Exec 2012 Agent for Win per server
- Symantec Backup Exec 2012 Agent for Application and database Win per server.
 
The backup server with the Sym. installing server was not easy, because just up the SP1 install (not SP2). But it is possible update to SP2.
 
Agents was installed on a virtual machine ( Win2012 and 2008 on VMware).
The Servers of Backup Exec Agent I can set on Backup Exec Server.
The backup user has rights (Backupadmin) on SQL Server.
The other server is a Win Exchange Server.
Even stop the tape backup with SQL error.
Unfortunately, there are around 2TB of data so it takes a long time to try.
How can I eliminate the problem?
The Test mode run without mistake.

Have you any idea?

Just to expand on the reply above...this will only be supported with BE 2012 R2 which is due to go to Beta at the beginning of next year. I would suggest you sign up for it.
If you are able to, I would suggest seeing if you can load Windows Server 2008 R2 on your backup server instead, if at all possible. Not the most ideal setup, but it woild be good-enough to get you going.

Thanks!
