Having a problem with my Back up Exec 10.0. I recently changed my Network Admin Password that I use to run the back ups at night and now my Backup exec gives me this error message saying the password does not match. I went into the settings and changed the user names password on the back up exec and it will not take. Any suggestions ?

    Try changing the password to 12 characters or less.

    Try changing the passwords in the services snap-on itself.

    Start > Run > Services.msc

    Locate all the BackupExec Services, Right-Click, Properties, Logon and update the Username and Password.

    Restart each service after you do this. Once this is all take care of try to login to BE again. If it kicks the error back again now go through BE to change the Account.

    What OS are you using? Check to see that the SQL instance for backup exec isn't using the admin password as well. Go to services.msc and check the properties of the backup exec sql and change the password if necessary.
