shrink db of symantec backup exec 2012

Hi Experts,

I am using backup Exec 2012 on a WIN2008 server.
The free version of SQL DB is nearly full.
I have over 18000 errors which are from the past.

Is there a way to delete all this old errors from the symantec db ?

The free version would that be 2008 or 2008R2?

Ok fine, that would have a DB size limit of 2GB, IMHO I'd rather upgrade the db to sql 2008 if the OS is 32bit or 2008r2 if the OS support 64bit.

This should give you 4GB and 10GB respectively which is either x2 or x5 of what you currently have.

Now my DB reaches 4GB, not 2GB.
The warning is nearly 4GB are full.

When I remember to the old versions of BE, you could select all errors and warnings and delete them all. But how it goes here in BE2012 ?

Please try this command

Clear-BEAlert -Response Ok -Confirm:$False

Also this article sheds more light on configuring auto-response.

I did this command:

Clear-BEAlert -Response Ok -Confirm:$False

But I have got just errors.
Now I try to repair the catalog, because this are catalog errors.
I will come back tomorrow :-)

now I solved it with a repair of the catalog.

   Run CatRebuildIndex to rebuild the Catalog indexes.
    Stop all BE Services
    Open command prompt and browse to x:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec
    Run "CatRebuildIndex -r".
    Start all BE services.

Then in BEMCLI : Clear-BEAlert -Response Ok -Confirm:$False
