I am going to use netbackup to backup the ms sql server 2008 db,
however, when i setup the sql server properties, no matter on the db server itself or the netbackup management server,
it also failed.
the error is "Application coneciton failed for %SERVERNAME% Please select a differetn SQL Server host and instance, or press 'canel' to exit the Netbackup for SQL Server Graphical User Interface.
do you guys know what's going on?
I pretty confirm the user id and password are working well.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Does your user name have local admin rights on the SQL server?
