Access to Client DB

I am using BackUp Exec 10d for out backups, we have installed the agents for remote servers and also the SQL agent.


Everything was working fine until I changed the password to the account used to do the backups. We troubleshoot this problem through and through and scrapped that because it was not the prefered user account (restructuring the administrative accounts) we were wanting to use in the end. Created a new user and have been working from there.


BackupExec itself is fine with the new user account as the deault, credentials appear to be fine. We uninstall the remote SQL agent and re-installed using the new accounts credentials and all went well. The problem is however connecting to the databases through the remote agent.

As far as I can tell, at this moment I have the setup completely duplicated from what was the working setup before all these changes. The current config mirrors the working configuration just using a different user account. All groups and rights access appear to be the same.

Any suggestions would be great.
