I am having great issues backing up sql 2008 db and files with backup exec 11d. AOFO not used. Snapshot provider error. Backup just hangs and then eventually fails. A communications error occured with the resource(tested recource credentials before hand). I do a lot of sql backups, mostly remote and the sql agents are loaded. Is there maybe backup exec patches/updates to load to resolve issues.

Here's a bit more information than the above: BE 12.5 supports SQL 2008, but that's ancient. Your best bet is to look at upgrading to BE 2010 R3 at a minimum which will definitely support it. That's the only option you have in order to backup the SQL server.
