Corrupt SQL Server 2005 Express Preventing Backup Exec from running
Posted on 2010-09-15
I have recently had to run a repair on a Windows 2008 R2 server that was hosting VMs and Backup Exec 2010, the upgrade in place worked for the Hyper-V host well but I cannot get Backup Exec to start because the SQL server dependency will not start, it returns an error 1067 from the service. I tried running the instance direct from the command line and this is the error I receive:
SQL Server could not find the specified named instance (BKUPEXEC) - error2please specify the name of an existing instance on the invocation of sqlserver.exe.
If you believe your installation is corrupt or has been tampered with, uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem.
The perf-BKUPEXECsqlctr.ini exists. I have tried reinstalling SQL server - no help, and I cannot uninstall it using the control panel. Is there any script I could run to get this fixed?
