I have an SBS 2003. It had BES 4.0.1, and SQL MSDE installed. All of a sudden the BES SQL database was not accessable. In SQL management studio express, we were unable to connect to it at all. 2 thoughts were that 1 the database was corrupt or 2, it is possible the user profile of the person who created the database was deleted (or both.)
So we upgraded them to BES Express 5. This install runs SQL 2005 Express - thus updating the MSDE. We installed and configured a new database. After install, we are running BES just fine(SERV2\BLACKBERRY).
However the OLD
sql instance that we were having trouble with is still there (SERV2). The error code when trying to connect is there. We have tried everything - including administrtors, and sa accounts etc, but cannot connect.
Does any one know if we can delete this - and if it will have an impact on the other SQL instances. We are nervous as it appears to be the "Root" name of the other instances.
The main problem is that NTBACKUP is not runnning now with a VSS handshake error and we think that this SQL instance is the problem, we also just want to get it cleaned up.
Has anyone seen this before and or have any advice?
