BE server service fails to start (hangs) after installation of hotfix

kogeler asked
After LiveUpdate installed a hotfix on the BAckup Exec server, the system was rebooted. After reboot the BE Server service fails to start.
The application log contains the following entry:
Faulting application beserver.exe, version 11.0.7170.27, faulting module mscoree.dll, version 2.0.50727.832, fault address 0x000302da.

and the system log:

Application popup: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library : Runtime Error!

Program: C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\beserver.exe

Any ideas?

To circumvent the problem I installed BE on another server and tried to move the BE database etc from the old server using http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/288640. This did not work. Also on the new server BE server will not start. After uninstalling BE and installing it again on the new server but without using the old BE database everything is OK, but now I miss my cataloges, media sett information,  tape library configuration, etc.

Anyone able to help me getting BE to work again, or to move the catalogues and other information to the new server in a different way?

What was the solution? I've got a similiar issue...

I also would like to know how this problem was resolved. What was your solution?


I posted the solution at: https://forums.symantec.com/syment/board/message?board.id=be11dOther&thread.id=1691. Later I had a similar problem (same symptoms), after a update of .Net.  After .Net was removed and reinstalled, it worked again.
I had the same problem and was able to resolve it using this link:  In summary set Outlook as the default mail client.
