I just migrated a database from SQL7 to SQL2005. the database seems to have completed a successful migration how ever when I try to create a Database maintenance plan to backup the database it is not showing in the list. How can I fix this so that I can be able to create a backup maintenance plan.

Thanks

can you please check the database compatibility value for that database?
it might still be on value 70, so you might want to change to 90 (sql 2000)

Compatability mode of 90 would be 2005   (sql 2000 is 80)

So, yes, check the compatability mode. Also make sure you have updated the serucrity matrix enabling the various "SQL" and "SQL Agent" profiles have been updated to access your database.

Might be worth doing a manual backup and restore to a "test" database (after changing compatability modes) and try a maintenance plan against that one...
