Backup exec 11d services will not start.
Posted on 2010-08-17
We have a single SBS 2003 running Backup Exec 11d. This was working fine till we changed the administrator password.
We can log into the server OK, but now the Backup Exec services will not start. I have tried to set the password back to what it was originally, but due to the domain policy, we cannot do this. Ihave tried modifying the password security settings but it does not help. I presume we may have to rerstart the server to implement the changes, or better still restart a service.
Would setting the password back to what it was help?
Dioes anyone know if we can achieve this by restarting a service, as restarting the server would be a real pain.
Also does anyone know why changing the administrator password would affect the Backup Exec services? There does seem to be a password issue here, but I do not know how I should change this to match the new password. We are told that it cannot connect to the data source.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
