Hi all,
I am currently trying to PUSH INSTALL a SQL AGENT for BACKUP EXEC 9.  However, whenever I try to install the agent, I get the following error:
attempting to connect to server failed with the following error: the account name and/or password supplied is not valid.  Please re-enter the login information and try again.

Also, I notice there aren't any default shares in 'shared folders\shares' area, such as ADMIN$, or IPC$.
My DBA installed SQL, but has no clue.  Can someone please help me ASAP.

The account that runs backup exec agent needs to have access to the sql server ..  add the account to the within sql and give it the appropriate rights

This account is 'administrator'.  It has access to that SQL Server.

It may require a SQL authenticated account rather than a windows account ..  possibly

What is a SQL authenticated account?  Is there a manager where you'd set that up?

Hey again,
I've checked my SQL server, I cannot even share a folder.  There is no 'sharing' tab on any properties page for any folder....
Is this common for SQL server to set parameters like those?

You shouldnt have to share out folders on the server ..   The BACKUP EXEC SQL Agent should back up the databse not the flat file ..   A SQL authenticated account is an account you create within SQL Server .. your dba shoudl be able to create you one .. sometimes Apps need a SQL authenticated account NOT a windows  authenticated account to connect ....

Tab8,
Thanks, I will let him know.  He has told me that Windows Authentication is enabled.  I will have him try it ASAP (he's on vacation).  Hopefully this will work.
