I am trying to setup a windows backup on a new install of SBS 2011. When I run backup setup wizard I get the following:

Cannot configure backup schedule
The server cannot configure the backup schedule. Please try again. If this problem persists, contact the person or company who provides you with technical support.

Some forums suggest I do wbadmin enable backup from CMD, but that returns:

ERROR - The backup catalog is corrupted. Please restore the catalog from a
backup using WBADMIN RESTORE CATALOG. For Help, type

Its a brand new install. I don't have a backup of the catalog. Any suggestions?
