Backup Exec 2012


I`am having problems with adding a new VMwareserver trough central administration console.

The server has already been in the list but was discarded, and there are no current jobs or anything related to it.

Currently I`am using BackupExecServer V14.0 Rev. 1798 (64-bit).

This is an error generated when trying to finish the process.

The system is patched up to date.

What could be causing the problem?

Thank you, Martin

Do you have many backup jobs

Do you have many backup jobs created for various servers? My question is related with the solution which is to reload the Backup Exec database from base. Using this solution it would require to create all the backup jobs, settings etc.
