Backup Exec 12.5 for Windows Servers revision 2213 Service Pack 2 New Features
Service Pack 2 contains new fixes/enhancements for the following issues:
In order to prevent users from running into issues related to the need to reboot the Media server, Backup Exec Services will now check for the need to reboot and an alert will be generated. Note: the time it takes to generate this alert may cause a slight delay in starting services and the Backup Exec Services Manager may appear when starting the GUI the first time after installing the service pack. If this happens, it is recommended that you close the GUI and open it again. If a required reboot has not been done, it is recommended to reboot if any unusual problems/errors occur when attempting operations in Backup Exec.
