Backup Exec 12: Backup Fails on WSUS server
Posted on 2008-10-08
We are using a backup to disk environment. Backup Exec 12 fails with the following error:
Resource name : \\SBS\Microsoft SQL Server "WSUS"Logon account : System Logon Account
Encryption used : None
Error : e000848c - Unable to attach to a resource. Make sure that all selected resources exist and are online, and then try again.
The drive is of course online, and takes the rest of the backup no problem. But the backup reports as failed because of the above.
I looked in the selection list, and the only SQL Server instances selected are EPOSERVER and BKUPEXEC.
MICROSOFT##SEE, SBSMONITORING, and SHAREPOINT are not selected for backup.
We aren't using WSUS (as far as I know) so I considered uninstalling it. But it warned about breaking other installations if I proceeded so I backed off. I'd be happy with just excluding it from the backup exec job?
