Windows Environment Check (upgrade 11d to 12) reveals incompatible SQL instance of WSUS

Created: 28 Feb 2009 • Updated: 02 Mar 2009

We plan to upgrade Backup Exec 11.0d to 12.0 SP3 on a server which functions are a domain controller. Additionally this server acts as WSUS server for our domain. It uses an MSDE to store the WSUS db.

 

I ran the environment check and it threw up only this failure:

 

 

Microsoft SQL Server and SQL Express
Status: Passed

Existing instances of Microsoft SQL Server are compatible with Backup Exec.

 

Failed = Instance: WSUS, Version: 2000 SP 4
Passed = Instance: BKUPEXEC, Version: 2005
 

Backup Exec MSDE 2000 Check
Status: Passed 

 

The current version of Backup Exec is not using an instance of MSDE 2000. 

 

 

Will WSUS get affected after the upgrade?
