Backing up SQL2005 server after upgrade from SQL2000
Posted on 2006-11-20
We had a production server that was recently upgraded to SQL2005 running peoplesoft. This project was really for a peoplesoft upgrade, but the SQL version went to 2005 as well. We have Veritas Backup Exec 10 installed on this server as well and were backing up the data files and SQL DB. After the upgrade to SQL2005 we can no longer backup SQL server through backup exec. The error when browsing selections on this server, specifically when you try to expand SQL2005 is:
"Microsoft SQL Server does not appear to be running or network connections are preventing acccess to it"
I triple checked and SQL 2005 is running and everything else works in Backup Exec, except for backing up SQL2005 now. Has anyone else upgraded to SQL2005 from an older version and run into problems backing up the databases? I tried browsing SQL2005 from Backup Exec 10.1d from Symantec now, which we have running on a separate server, but I get the same exact error, which leads me to think that its a problem with SQL2005 not with Backup Exec or Windows server.
