SBO backup problem


Dear experts,

i am having a problem with SBO backup service, it actually does not work at all. I have tried all sorts of settings change and re-start of the service but in vain. I have also re-installed the server tools.

My concern is that there might be a problem with the infrastructure in place.

The specs of the server is:

Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition

SBO 2007A PL30

SQL Server 2005 Express Edition

I have also analysed the application logs for sbo backup in Event Viewer. The error message indicates:

'The description for Event ID ( 159 ) in Source ( SBOBackUp ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Failed to connect to the common Db,

next trial in 1 minute.'

Pls help 😊
