I have a SQL 2005 Server (running on a brand new Windows 2003 Server).  I am the domain admin.  I can login locally to the machine and I can backup all the databases using Enterprise Manager.  My problem is that I need to back up the SQL databases using Veritas BackupExec.  Through BackupExec, I can see the server and backup the file structure, and yes, I do have the Veritas SQL Agent installed.  The problem, is that when I click on the SQL Agent on the server from BackupExec, it says "Network Error, could not connect"...But there's no network errors, I can see everything else on the server just fine...Any ideas?  Thanks.
