Microsoft SQL agent on Backup Exec 12.5
Posted on 2009-04-15
We have Backup Exec 12.5 for window servers running on 2003 servers. Our backups are working fine, but having an issue that I could use some help for.
We purchased Agent for MIcrosoft SQL Server and another Remote Agent for WIndows and NetWare Servers, I've installed these locally on our Backup server, and they are showing up under License keys. Then I pushed an install of the Remote backup to our new SQL server. I went in to our scripts to add this server to our backups and ensure that the SQL databases are getting backed up. The Server itself is getting backed up (Source - Selections - Favorites - C:, D:, System State, Utility Partition, Shadow Copy Components) but there is no icon to see the SQL Databases.
I've looked at the Admin manual (pg 1332: A list of shared network directories appears, along with an icon that represents the SQL installation. To select all databases in SQL, click the check box preceding the SQL icon, or you can select specific databases by clicking the SQL icon, and then selecting individual databases.)
Yeah, there's no icon that represents the SQL installation...
I can't find anything on Symantecs site, google, to no avail.
I've seen where the sql agent does not support SQL 2008, but we're running SQL 2005 (here's the caveat) On W2K8 Server...is this what's screwing me up? I can see everything else on the server just fine, but not the SQL?
K, rambling now...
Boss is breathing down my neck on this one, 500 points up for grabs.
