File browser unable to access local resource

Postby marclallen » Mon Mar 04, 2013 5:55 pm

I've got around a dozen servers running SQL Backup. We are upgrading one and I've got everything installed.

The backup agent is running as Administrator, and it's still in TRIAL mode, as I haven't gotten a license to use at this time.

When I go to restore a file/Browse for backup files/Add Files, the file browser shows the local server with a red X, saying it cannot connect to the resource.

I've never had this happen before. Running Windows Server 2008 R2, SQL Backup Pro 7.0.4.2.

I'm sure it's something stupid, but.. any ideas?

Thanks,

Marc

Are you able to browse the local folders when logged on to the SQL Server instance (via the SQL Backup GUI) using a Windows authenticated account?

Yes, I am. That's what was so confusing. SSMS was able to do things with no problem.

I did eventually find the issue... I think I installed the agent and then changed the SA password. I don't know if the agent uses that password, but I noticed you do have to enter it. There was no way for me to change it (or no way I could find), so I finally uninstalled and reinstalled the agent and everything was fine.
