  • Backup exec 10d cmpatibility

    Hi Admins,

    I just joined this forums today, and very happy to join it.
    I have a problem, in my organization we are using Symantec Backup exec 10d, now we are planning to upgrade it in 11 or 12
    We have 2 years backup with exec 10 d, can be restore (using the catalog of 10d) data in 11 or 12 exec. 11 and 12 are fully compatible with 10 or not.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would assume that your planning stage would include a step where by you actually research if it's compatible or not, and if it's not compatible, what your mitigation steps might be for instance.

    Even if this means something as annoying as re-cataloging every media device.

    Review the media and in particular the upgrade instructions that come with the new version of backup exec, this will probably have the information in it

    or better yet - try a trial version of BEX12, and see if you can restore the data. that's another quick easy way to deal with the possibility
    Please do show your appreciation to those who assist you by leaving Rep Point
