Upgrade from BE2010 to BE2012
I am planing to upgrade from BE10 R3 to BE12. To date my BE environment is as follow:
1 Backup Exec Server with BE10 R3 and 2010 Symantec Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO)
Around 17 servers that gets backup up with dfferent jobs setup.
Around 200 client computers (XP, W7) have DLO agent installed, and daily backups are being runned.
Now i want to upgrade to BE2012 and obviously have some question even after doing some research on internet:
My understanding is that DLO is not an intergrated part of BE anymore and that we need a separate software (Symantec DLO 7.0) for that. And if i am not wrong, DLO needs to be upgraded first, but my question is
What will happen to things like user profiles, backed up data, agents installed on client computers, after the upgrade?
And what will happen to all the configurations/settings?
And does an upgrade to BE12 automatically give you a lisense for Symantec DLO 7.0?
And for the BE2012 upgrade i already have a video i found on internet which i am going to use. Is there anything i need to be carefull about when upgrading BE2012?
