I upgraded my ACT 2010 to 2012 and in the process needed to completely uninstall SQL server from a server containing CA ARCserve r15. As a result the ARCserve stopped working. I tried creating a new instance called ARCSERVE_DB and followed instructions from CA's site on how to manually create a DB. That did not help. I cannot seems to make the manager/ software see the new database. I also chacked name pipes and TCP on the ARCSERVE_DB are enabled. I went to the Server configuration wizard but could not connect the database.
By the way I am using SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. I am really hoping I would not need to uninstall and reinstall ARCserve altogether. That would be a nightmare.
Any suggestions on how to restore proper operations would be greatly appreciated.
