Backup Exec 11.d SQL event error message

Posted on 2007-07-19

I am running Backup Exec 11.d Small Business Edition on SBS 2003. I am backing up a SQL database and it appears to backup fine. The backup is reported as successful. The only problem I'm having is this one error message in the event log. Is this something to worry about? If not, can I suppress this error message?

The only article I found was  but that has to do with remote agent and tells how to disable SQL backup if it is not being used.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Backup Exec
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      57860
Date:            7/18/2007

An error occurred while attempting to log in to the following server: "BWSERVER".
 SQL error number: "0011".
 SQL error message: "[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

    An option..use SQL Manager to backup to hard drive.
    Disable BE SQL backup, but backup the SQL bacup files to tape.

    Accepted Solution

    Turns out that Veritas tries to access all SQL databases listed in the registry when the backup starts. The SBS Monitoring database was not started. This caused the error to be generated.

    I have the same situation, except, I get 2 times the error in the eventlog. After some searching, it seems the error comes in the eventlog at 21:00 (start of my backup) and again at 21:20 (start of backup D: partition). After that I still have backup of Exchange and SQL servers, but the error does not come back.
    There is indeed a sqlserver that is stopped on this server.
    Does that mean BackupExec tries to login to all SQL servers each time a harddisk is backed up?
