Maintenance Routines

I recently took over administration of a SQL 2005 Server with some problems for a new client. Apparently then had migrated directly from SQL 7 to 2005. Currently I am unable to add any of the user created DBs to a maintenance routine. They are not visible to select when I start an new maintenance routine so I am having to manually back up these DBs on a daily basis. I have noticed that their compatibility level is SQL 7, could this be the problem? Please advise, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe...although I am not sure. Why can't you create a maint plan to do it?  First things first, you're going to want to set the db compatability from 7 to 90 (sql 2005).  Once you've done that, try to create a maint plan from scratch.

I am attempting to create a maint plan from scratch, but the DBs in question aren't available as selections. The system DBs are there, just not the user created ones. I am concerned that upgrading the compatibility level of those DBs will disrupt the app on the front end. I'll give it a shot after hours and see what shakes out.

When you have databases that are in compatibility modes other than 90 then the databases will not show up in the Maintenance Plan selections.
