Backup Exec 2010 R3 server service will not start after applying HOTFIX 176937
Has anyone else experienced issues with Backup Exec 2010 R3 services failing to start after applying HOTFIX 176937. I have been able to install SP2 thru Liveupdate and all the service start quickly and run fine. But here begins the problem:. I then run liveupdate again with pending HOTFIXES 176937 and 180429. They both install with green check marks and no errors but, the beserver service will not complete “Starting” and just hangs there. I have isolated the issue to HOTFIX 176937 after reinstalling BackupExec from scratch two times because the hotfix cannot be uninstalled. This last time I tried to install 176937 manually also with no joy.
Here is some additional system information:
Backup Exec 2010 R3 Ver 13.0 Rev. 5204 (64-bit)
Version that will start is beserver.exe v13.0.5204.122
Version that won’t start is beserver.exe v13.0.5204.126
Running on Windows 2008 R2 x64 Server
I am not sure where to go from here except to skip 176937 forever as I am tired of reinstalling BE.
If anyone might know of a silver bullet I would appreciate the help, Thanks
