Backup Exec 2010 R3 not showing Resources Selections

Fubr asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have installed backup Exec 2010 R3 on a 2008 R2 server (our backup server). And we have an Exchange 2003 server (running server 2003) with the exchange agent installed and been backing it up for the last couple months. Been able to include/exclude items, restore items no problem.

Couple days ago, I installed the windows agent on a second server (2008 R2), and updated the agent and added the computer on the backup server. Now when I go into Backup Exec and try to add to the Backup job, in the Selections, the “View By Resource” tab is grayed out. Not letting me do anything??

The backup job still runs (from the first server), but I can’t access anything to change or restore.
If I try to redirect the restore to a folder. I get the same grayed out “All Resources” and won’t let me drill down to save the target.

I was able to do all this before (edit selection,restore, redirect to folder…etc), but since I added the second server, I’m like lock out….

Anyone have any input on this?

Thanks in advance
