backup exec 2010 serices will not start

Created: 21 Jun 2013 | 4 comments

We had our server shut down during a storm and now the services will not start. Can someone please give me some ideas to try. Comes up with error 1068 but it looks like a non helpful error.

Thank you

Try opening windows services and starting the services individually 

Be sure to slide down to the SQL instance ... BKUPEXEC and verify that it is started first

Edit... Here's the order for you 


BE Remote agent

BE Device and media

BE server service

BE job engine service

BE Agent browser

I did notice that SQL will not start as well. So I guess if that will not start either will the others. Is there a config file that hold computer name or sql name that may have got damaged because of the shut down?

Verify that the SQL instance is configured to run as System logon account
