Backup of SQL databases with Backup Exec 11d

Hi,

I recently purchased the SQL backup module for Backup Exec 11d.  It installed fine, however when I try and select SQL Server databases on the remote server in the selection list, it asks me to choose an account to use (obviosuly my main account, which is a member of the domain admins, doesnt have access?)

is there a group I need to add this account to in order to let it access and backup the databases?

the other instances of SQL (we are running Sophos etc on the same box) can be selected and backed up without a problem, it's just the main one that experiences this.

Any ideas? I'm a novice when it comes to SQL

thanks,

You need to grant the backup exec service account access to SQL.

You can use same domain account you have used for installing SQL Server.

Go to Active Directory > Choose the group in which account exist > right clik on user name and take properties

ON 'Member Of' tab click Add and write "SQL" (without qoutes) and click check names. Add all SQL Access or SIMLARLY CHECK BACKUP EXEC groups to add.

Hope it will work

Apologies...

SQL Server Management Studio. Connect to your SQL Instance.

Under Secutiry; Right Click; Add new User account for the service account running BE. Give this account a role of sysadmin under the server roles tab

Click OK and should be job done.

That wont work unless your SQL Server has already been setup with a windows group for those who can perform sysadmin functions.
