Veritas 10 sp6 failing : directory or file not found

Hello Experts,

I`m trying to move away from manual and NT backup by implementing an old copy of Backup Exec 10.  I am getting the following error message even though I have now only selected one 10MB test directory on the C drive which eliminates what I thought was the cause (a stale DFSv2 directory)

The directory or file was not found or could not be accessed

The OS is Server 2003 R2 and I have heard there may be a compatibility issue.

Please help!

Thanks

You should be running 10d

Does the user you are using to do backups have access to the directory you are backing up?

The user account being used definately has access because the test run works fine.  As soon as I come to perform the proper backup it immediately fails (straight after retention).  What is the difference between 10 and 10d?  Is this the revision that "works" with R2 or something?

Thanks

You probably have SQL 2005 installed. As samirise said, you need 10d (10.1). 10.0 does not work with SQL 2005 and generates this error. See accepted solution in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Storage/Backup_Restore/Backup_Exec/Q_22577906.html for info on where to download 10.1 - it's free if you have 10.0. Make sure to apply the latest service pack (SP4).

Thanks for the suggestion.  I will try this tomorrow and let you know how I go.  I had gradually updated the server to SP6 not realising there was a different release!! (10.1)

Thanks
