Yeah, that is easily done but can you clarify what and how you want to do the backup?  Are you just looking to include a .BAK in your nightly?

I am looking to back up the entire server, including the database, in case of a crash.

So, it sounds like the question is how to install/configure the backup job?

This link contains a comprehensive guide on doing that with BE2010.

You can also follow this MSDN guide on creating a daily SQL backup so you have a .BAK file as well.

Not really.  I know how to do that.  I was under the impression that we had to upgrade to BackupExec 2012 to be able to back up a database that is on a 2012 server, and from what I've read about BackupExec 2012, I'm not interested in doing the upgrade, especially since we're looking at other backup alternatives.

I have been trying to back it up, but it fails.

Sorry.  I thought my last comment was self-explanatory, that it is not possible to back up an SQL database with BackupExec 2010.
Thanks for your help.
Cheers
