You should not be backing up your SQL Server databases together with your files because for SQL databases, you need to turn off AOF.  You need two jobs.  One for file backup with AOF on and the other one for SQL databases with AOF off.

In BE 2014, you would not be able to set different credentials for the SQL instance. This is by design and which is why you cannot change it.

Have a look @ this KB as well -

Thanks VJware, SA authentication no longer support then i need contact my dba to grant BE user as System Administrator for each instance.
