ArcServe BAOF not starting in W2k3 Srv.

Hi,

I have two Windows 2003 servers with ArcServe 2000 on tem installed. On one server is the ArcServe backup Enterprise 2000 installed and on the other one just the client backup agent. Both servers contain a Backup Agent for Open Files.

The problem is that this service does not start at the windows 2003 servers. It works at my Windows NT and Windows 2000 servers without any problems. When trying to start the service, it stops immidiatly and returns an unspecified error.

Further information: The installation is clear withous servicepacks. SP5 will be tested soon.

Does anyone of you have any experience with this kind of problem on Windows 2003?

Kind regards,
A.J.v R.

ARCserve 2000 and all options are not compatible with Windows 2003. I have heard of some using the base product ok on 2003 but most can not get it working correctly. As for the Open File Agent because it uses a file system driver there is no way it will work under 2003.

I'd say it is time to upgrade. Version 11.1 is pretty good, it had a large beta program and reviews where good.
