Windows Server 2008 Backup connect to remote Server

Hi,

I've two servers, both installed with Windows 2008 R2 .
On both I've a account as Administrator, the account name is the same (myaccount).
Firewall on both are shut down.

Now I like to backup one server by the other using Windows Server Backup.
I choose "connect to remote server", enter the IP of the other server and get an error message like:
Can't connect to the windows backup model of the remote computer ...

Is there any more to do?
Windows backup is installed at both mashines.

Thanks

Andre

As far as I know the builtin backup tool of 2008 r2 server is built only for backing up itself, not other servers. If you need that functionality you should look at m$'s DPM or third party backup software.

Otherwise just start the backup tool on the other server too.

In R2 you can backup remote servers.

Did you actually stop the Firewall service or did you turn it off for the domain or private network connection? Please try the second option.

Don't want to offend you but are you really sure that both are R2? Because only R2 supports remote backup.

Well ... One of the server is behind a router - maybe I need port forewarding for this one?
Which port do the backup service use?

Actually I have no idea. I also searched the web for it but could not find anything regarding required ports for backup.

Can you authenticate to this server otherwise, i. e. access a share on it? Have you ever tried? I think authentication is what you need to look at first. I tried to connect to a remote server in my environment yesterday and the only thing I saw in the security log on the remote server was an entry for successful authentication. That was via Kerberos which would be port 88/tcp. Maybe you try that one.
