SQL 2008

Under "Maintenance Plans" I have two backup tasks.

November last year I took a database off line.

I have noticed that the tasks are still trying to backup the old database.  
I have also noticed that it is not backing up my new database.

SQL Backup
Where do I alter the databases which are being backed up?

Right click on the Back Up Datebase (Full) box and select Edit.

There's a dropdown at the top of the edit box that's going to say "Selected Databases".

You can modify your selections in there.

right click the back up task, edit, add the new DB, and remove the old.

..or change to "all Databases"

Yes, if you select "All Databases" then I believe all should be backed up automatically.

Could be security related, not 100% certain.

How are you connecting to the database instance ?
On the server locally?
Remote access?

The only reference I've found so far is this one but it is about remote access to the server for management of a remote server.

Not sure why your connection is empty, when I look at ours it is filled in with "Local server connection".  Also, one of the options is "All user databases" which excludes the system databases.  And it does start including any new databases that get added to the server.  We have been using this backup planfor sevaral years now.backup plan
