Hi all,

I'm planning to use SQL Server 2012 as backup Exec database repository. Is SQL Server 2012 supported by Backup Exec 2012?

Do I have to name the instance BKUPEXEC? What are the steps and the prerequisites to install the instance?

Unfortunately SQL 2012 is not supported as a Backup Exec database repository. It does not matter if you name the instance BKUPEXEC or by any other name as long as the version of SQL is supported.

Here are the compatibility lists.

Also we strongly recommend that backup Exec does not share a SQL instance with any production databases, it should have a unique instance to itself.
