Hi sufta,

You're out of luck. SP4 is not supported...check the SCL on the link below, and go to the BEDB repository section...

Only up to SQL Express SP3 and then SQL Express 2008...


Alternative ways to access Backup Exec Technical Support:

Hi CraigV,

Page 20 of attached document in the link does states that SQL Express 2005 SP4 is supported on x386-32bit.

Am I regarding correct?

Pg 20 refers to the database versions that can be backed up by Backup Exec 12.5

In other words, BE 12.5 can backup a SQL Express 2005 SP4, however the Backup Exec database (BEDB) itself cannot be installed on SQL Express 2005 SP4.

Pg 50 refers to the database versions that can be used for the BEDB.
