BUE 2010 services fail to start on clean Windows 2008 R2 Standard server (x64)?
I have a 100% cleanly installed 64-bit Windows 2008 R2 Standard server, fully patched, with MS SQL 2008 Express installed. I am able to install BUE 2010 but after the installation completes, when I reboot the system it fails in starting the basic services. Paritcularly the BackUp Exec Server service appear to hang in 'Starting" mode with no messages in the Event Logs stating why.
The server doesn't have any storage devices connected to it, outside of the local disks which is what I was planning on using this server for (disc-to-disc) backups.
Any idea where the incompatibility might be?
