How to upgrade Symantec Backup Exec 2010 to 2012?

Last one month ago, I've got one experience in upgrading of Symantec backup exec 2010 to 2012. I'd like to share my experience of it. Let's do question what we will need before do the upgrading process, 1) Before upgrade it , what should I do? (Backup what?) 2) will the existing setting can directly import to 2012? 3) If fail, can I roll back to old version? 4) After download and extract SBE 2012, can I directly run it & auto upgrade to 2012? 5) Remote agent, CPS (Continuous Protection Server) console also need to upgrade to lastest version? Here is the answer for above question, 1) Before upgrading stop SQL server BKUPEXEC service and make a copy of the DATA and     CATALOGS folder. These folders are located at X:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec 2) When you perform an Inplace upgrade, all the jobs, policies, media sets and other settings are     retained and imported into the new version. 3) If it fails, it will roll back to older version
