BE 2012 and Exchange 2010 DAG - SQL backup issue.
Trying to backup an Exchange 2010 DAG.
The mailbox databases back up fine. However, there is an MS SQL instance associated with the DAG that I cannot connect to.
BE2012 see's the SQL instance, but I cannot authenticate against it using any accounts I know. Unsure how to manage it to check permissions as it appears to be a SQL Compact Edition database. I assume it stores information about the DAG.
Jobs keep failing due to not being able to connect and backup this database. BE2012 reports it as:
---- Unable to attach to dag1.x.x\MICROSOFT##SSEE. (x's to replace hostname).
We are running BE2012 SP1a on a dedicated backup server - Windows Server 2008R2 x64 with latest patches.
