on Windows SBS 2008.

Install went fine on Dell Poweredge 840 with Perc 6 raid 5 system.

When I go to define backup,it only see's the USB drive.

Any ideas?

Normally this happens when you dont have the credentials set properly. In BE, click on Network -> Logon Accounts, and then either edit the default account and re-enter the password or setup a new account and set it as default (it has to be at least a local admin).

Also click on Tools -> Backup Exec Services -> Services credentials.., and change service account information and retype the username, domain (if applicable) and the password of an account with full admin rights on the computer (or domain if it is a domain environemnt).

I've seen goofy issues caused by service partitions on these machines too (the built in SBS backup would fail if you didn't remove it.

I'm assuming you have logged in as administrator.

Are you running Symantec Disaster Recovery from a CD or are you trying to install BE?

Are you running the SBS version of BE?

Looks like UAC might have been getting in the way too,but re entering the credentials let's me see the drives.

I've had to renter credentials more than once,so there may be a bug somewhere else.
