SQL Server not seen

Recommended Posts

For some reason retrospect does not want to see the SQL container on one our newest networked computers. However it recognizes it on the old system. The 2 systems with SQL Server 2000 running are using the 7.0.106 client. The backup system is running Retrospect 7.0.249 with a Multi Server License and the SQL Backup Add-on. All 3 systems are on Windows 2003. I even attempted to install Retrospect server locally on the problem system and it didn't see the SQL container either.

 

Any suggestions?

Hi -

 

I have seen reports that problems with the SQLDMO can prevent visibility of the SQL container. See if the following link provides any assistance:

 

Registering SQLDMO

 

Can the Enterprise Manager access the SQL instance?

Hi Amy,

 

I registered the Sqldmo.dll like the link said, and deleted the client from Retrospect and re-added it afterwards and still have the same problem. The Enterprise Manager can access the SQL instance without any problems. Even the the SQL Server Service Manager can access / see it on all 3 systems. Just Retrospect can't see it on the newest system.

 

Any other suggestions?

I would try rebuilding the registry entries for SQL. Stop the SQL services and copy your SQL flat files - or run a backup with the Enterprise Manager - before doing anything. In fact, make a copy of your registry too. Better safe then sorry.
