Backup Exec Jobs Failing - Unable to attach to a resource

Posted on 2009-04-16
Last Modified: 2013-12-01
When running a backup I'm receiving the following error:

"V-79-57344-33932 - Unable to attach to a resource. Make sure that all selected resources exist and are online, and then try again."

The issue occurs when BE is trying to connect to an Oracle DB. I know the DB is online so the issue is something else. I'm able to tnsping from the backup server so that is not the issue. Does anybody have any ideas?

    It appears that's what it was. I guess they went and changed things at some point. Thanks for your help!
