Backing up SQL2005 server after upgrade from SQL2000

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.  

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi MCPJoe,

While I've not used Backup Exec 10, there appears to be a hotfix for supporting sql 2005 (info here: http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/280204.htm).  Have you applied this?

Cheers!

I am going to try this, but I have to uninstall Backup Exec from the target server first.  I am running into issues where its telling me to contact support for a manual uninstallation.  So it is going to take me a while to get this done.

I was interested in seeing if this worked :(

I would say this one has been abandoned by the poster, delete.

Sorry, I got really busy and couldn't update this post.  

What I ended up doing was uninstalling Backup Exec from the SQL server itself, and using a consolidated backup server to remotely backup its contents.  I did install the SQL hotfix mentioned above on backup exec on the consolidated backup server and am now able to backup successfully.  Backup exec was pretty badly screwed up on the SQL server, so I had to uninstall it, which was also complicated.  Anyway, the hotfix does appear to work, as I can now backup SQL 2005 from backup exec 10 on another server.

Thanks
Joe
