Upgrade from Backup Exec 12.5 to 2012
Hello, I am currently running Backup Exec 12.5 in our production environment.
I have recently upgraded all the licenses in the license portal to the latest 2012 version.
I have set up a virtual machine and installed 2012, was able to activate the licenses, and ran some successfull tests. I am now ready to put 2012 into our production environment. I am hoping for some quick guidance on the best way to do this.
1. Install 2012 over-top of the existing 12.5 install?
2. Completely un-install 12.5 first, then install 2012 from scratch?
3. Is there another option I'm not aware of?
4. Also for the agents on the servers, do I un-install those first, then push the new agents, or can the new agents be pushed with the old agents still in place?
Our environment is small, so saving/exporting the current selection lists and jobs isn't necessary. So if a clean install is the better option, I'm not worried about setting everything up from scratch.
Thanks for any advice and guidance you can provide before I take on this upgrade. :)
