backup SQL2005 Cluster

Created: 19 Sep 2008 • Updated: 02 Mar 2009

Hello I need some help with Backup exec 12 in a sql 2005 failover cluster.

 

I have a cluster Active/passive with windows 2003 x64 on both servers, and sql2005 x64 installed as a cluster resource.

I already installed the agents on both nodes, and add them in my backup exec selection list, to make backups of my physical drives, at the moment all went well.

 

The problem is when i add the cluster virtual name in selection list i can see the disks that actually are in my san,  but I cannot see the sql agent.

 

We have other servers with sql that are not cluster and I can see the sql agent in my selection list.

 

is it cluster supported by backup exec 12???

 

please advise me if it is not, or what are the things that I can do to put it work.

 

thanks
