Using Backup Exec 12.5 to backup the Backup Exec server - DB credentials?

I'm attempting to backup the BE 12.5 media server but am getting errors regarding a lack of AOFO and SQL credentials. I don't know anything about SQL so what's on here is whatever installed with BE. According to "Install Options and License Keys on this Media server...", AOFO is properly installed. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Below I've included EV errors and BE errors.

I realized that I didn't know anything about databases. Our acting DBA went ahead and added maintenance tasks and we're backing these servers up through that now.

This had more to do with ignorance than it did anything particularly technical.
