The usability team will be conducting multiple studies on the Backup Exec 2012 upgrade experience.  We are beginning to recruit customers now.

We are looking for customers who:

  • Have not upgraded to 2012
    • Part 1: 1 hour chat about how you set up your environment, run your jobs, use storage and reports, etc.
    • Part 2: Want to see how your data would upgrade to BE 2012? This is an opportunity to upgrade your data on our virtual machines without touching your production environment. To do this, we will need to have you upload a copy of your BE databases to our secure FTP server.
  • Already upgraded to 2012
  • Part 1: 1 hour chat about how you set up your environment, run your jobs, use storage and reports, etc.
  • Part 2: We want to understand what your experience was like during the upgrade process to BE 2012. We want to know what you liked/didn't’t like, what functionality you gained/lost.

So, your backup server is a few years old and you find yourself in need of a newer, bigger, better, faster one. Just one problem, you want/need to keep your data from Backup Exec for compliance reasons. You have the perfect server that is ready to take on this new role. It is some new 64 bit monster with Windows 2008 R2, tons of I/O capacity, memory, disk space and more. Then you ask yourself, how do I move Backup Exec’s data from the old server to the new server and keep everything in working order? Time to check the technote database! So you head off to http://support.symantec.com and start doing some queries. You may find this technote:

How to migrate (move) Backup Exec from one system to another with the same version of BE, Windows and same or different computer names.
